My work on updating the Word Services SDK was interrupted by some
recent life events, but I expect I can get a release out by Sunday

Here is an informal protocol spec - it's *just* a narrative
description, not a proper spec.  There's a little Easter Egg all the
way at the end:


I have gotten the Word Services client sample code to build on Haiku.
I still have to get the Spellswell sources to build.  The Word
Services SDK will include the Spellswell Demo; I will be happy to
provide a free copy of the full-featured Spellswell to anyone who
wants to give Word Services some serious consideration.
