I the case of mailmerge the thing that the menus calls then goes on to
call the mailmerge service, so the menus don't call it directly.

I imagine your example to call a python service directly from the menus
is correct, except that the service you want to call needs to be
registered first.

is the magic bit which connects uses of the
"com.sun.star.mail.MailServiceProvider" service to the mailmerge.py
implementation. With these .component files 

I imagine that if you basically opengrok for mailmerge.py and
mailmerge.component and follow the same pattern for your one that it'll
get you a lot closer.

Your current code is in a feature branch ?, which one ?
