      Description

      A new service provider for the Service palette, that automatically adds services used by the current workflow.

      This could also/instead be a 'magic' provider that shows all currently open workflows, and allows expansion down to copy individual processors. If the workflow itself is dragged over, it's added as a nested workflow. (Taverna 1 has this functionality - but requires that you specify the workflow file you want to show)

      The last bit should be possible, the first bit requires a bit of trickery API-wise as it would be a different provider from an existing WSDL provider, for instance, but if they are to appear just like any other service it would have to re-use the WSDLServiceDescription etc. to avoid duplications from existing WSDL providers.

      Should check with users what they would prefer.
