    No.  But a consumer implementation is something that all apps on both  
    MacOS and GNUstep have; to leave it out of Emacs would be a glaring  
    deficit to users.  A provider implementation, where Emacs exports menu  
    entries for interapplication services to other apps, is nice, but is  
    only done by a minority of apps on either platform, so it goes beyond  
    what is needed for Emacs to be a first-class desktop citizen and might  
    as well be left for distributions.

We need to delete the "provider implementation" from Emacs 23.1.
