that's a good question.  here's another: of these real-world
cases, which are realistic, near targets, i.e., pre 0.9, or pre 1.0?

Does SQL Server fall into this category?  Print-driver installation like
in the Adobe Acrobat case I mention above?  I've seen proposals
for SMB support which do and do not fall into these categories....
and AFAIK we still don't have an answer to Martin's original question
about whether we care about the services APIs yet, and if so,
how to go about implementing them.

In most cases, it's easy to imagine work-arounds; one could argue
that this is a premature discussion.  Once RPC and DCOM start working,
I imagine some new things will come up that need adressing; it's hard for
me to predict what these would be, however.
