1st Dec 07 - Services

Butler now has services. You may wonder why services. Services are something between ordinal libraries acquired via 'require' and plugins. The idea of services is to provide infrastructure shared along plugins. For example the first service added is 'strings', it enables your plugins to use random strings like for acknowledgment or rejection of an order. Another example would be the log service (soon to come) which provides an interface to logged data. It could be used by a plugin to search the logs, by a 'seen' plugin or a quotes plugin.
