bug#3963: 23.0.94; Emacs on nextstep/Mac OS X should handle mailto: URLs

In Mail.app on Mac OS X, open Preferences -> General, and select Emacs
as the the default email reader.
Quit Mail.app and never use it again. 8-)

Now click on a mailto: link in your favourite web browser, or else run
a command like this:  open mailto:address@hidden

Notice that Emacs comes to the foreground, but nothing more happens.
What SHOULD happen is that Emacs opens a new draft email message
addressed to the named recipient.

Note that the nextstep port is already capable of similar feats, using
the Service menu in any application; but this is more important, as
users click on mailto links all the time, and we don't want to
discourage their use of Emacs for email.
