Alfresco and Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web services

We are experimenting with a product called Planet Press (
One feature we would like to use is its Sharepoint integration … but without using Sharepoint!

I have configured a clean install of Alfresco 4.0.d to use the SharePoint protocol support. I am tantalisingly close to getting PlanetPress to work with Alfresco however PlanetPress appears to use some Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web service calls that Alfresco doesn't support. Specifically, in debug mode, I can see PlanetPress trying to query Alfresco for lists, e.g. the Lists.asmx calls in the logs below:

The query above is to get a list of folders in a document library.

Is there a reason why lists are not supported and would it be possible to extend support for more SharePoint Foundation Web services?
