The Finder is a badly written app. I'm not sure that means it's Carbon.

At least in 5G48 (I /really/ need to find time to update to 10.1 
final), the Services items for things like Grab, Mail, etc. are all 
dimmed in the Finder, so no, I don't think Services are at work here 
(unless through some nasty hack).

I'd certainly happy to learn otherwise, but all indications I've 
gotten are that Carbon doesn't get Services. We're certainly having 
to rewrite enough other code to support X (and just to make things 
work better) that I don't have a problem making changes to Alpha for 
Services, but I don't plan to waste any time at it until I see some 
definitive indications that Apple supports it.
