I fixed a lot of things there for 2.11. Could you test the latest code
from the git repo and share your opinions? It should be a drop-in

Currently, 2.11.0 is done code-wise and the only thing that holds it
back is the documentation. Once I get to revise it for 2.11, I'll push
the master branch in arskom/spyne repo to pypi. So it's just the right
time to give such feedback.
