How to inherit parent site permissions when creating subSite using webservice

Using Sharepoint 2007 webservices from a .Net web application I create a subSite (CreateDWS method).  I was originally hoping that the parent permissions would be inherited but no such luck.

According to the http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms772546(office.12).aspx, I should be able to add a XML tag like:        

Dim strNewUser As String = "<UserInfo>" & _             "<item Email='someone@somewhere.com' Name='username'/>" & _             "</UserInfo>" to the Createdws call.  Although I don't get an error it doesn't add the user to the newly created subSite.  Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Alternatively, is there a webservice I can use to set Inherit Parent permissions explicitly?

Failing that, how can I add an Active Directory domain group so that folks in that group can Contribute to the site?

Thanks in Advance
