Custom Module for Consuming Web Services in Drupal?

I'm going back and forth between using a contrib module (like wsclient) versus trying to custom code PHP to consume a third party web service.

I'm experimenting with the PHP SOAP library, and nuSoap. I don't have a lot of deep PHP coding experience so it's been a challenge.

So I would like some opinion about where to focus my time, one approach versus the other. Or does it involve a hybrid appraoch?

I guess it depends on how the web service exposes its data.  If the web service uses a RESTful interface, it is amazingly easy to write your own PHP.  Basically it can be done with file_get_contents() to read from a URL.
