Re-write it in Cocoa?!?

Unfortunately, ``nsspellserver carbon'' returns no hits from Google, and
the hits returned by ``nsspellserver cocoa'' are not promising.

Belike the most immediately useful / productive thing would perhaps be
getting Excalibur's dictionaries into something like ObjectFarmSpell?


Alternately, we can wait / hope that Apple will continue to work to make
Carbon and Cocoa coeval, and in so doing, have traditional Mac word
services become available via the nsspellserver (and vice versa!).
Ideally they'd do the same thing with Services / Contextual Menu Items.
