*You're* in the clear, certainly ;)

Aaron and I tried some ExtendedServices out, but mostly basic ones to a
Zebra server.  We certainly didn't test the OCLC stuff that you're
having trouble with, for exactly the same reasons that Mike pointed out
-- lack of prior art or use cases.

If there's anything in PyZ that needs fixing, I'm happy to try and help,
but it was Aaron that did most of the hard work at the ASN level.
You could try and find him on #code4lib on the Freenode IRC server
