I don't see what's so crucial. Rick said he plans to drop Word 
Services in favor of NeXT "Services". Alpha doesn't use Word 
Services. It just sends the whole document to Excalibur for checking. 
I seriously doubt that Rick will disable the ability to spellcheck a 
whole document.

I'm not saying that AlphaX/AlphaTk shouldn't support Services. I'm 
saying that Apple has a pretty poor track record providing 
documentation and access to all this NeXTy stuff.
