sorry I wasn't being entirely clear here.. the current code will work for the
time being (as the key names are different).

What I was referring to is the fact that Links expects applications to have a
single string value for 'provides' in the Horde registry. There are already
several Horde apps that have multiple values for 'provides' inside an array in
registry.php. It would probably be cleaner if the Links API could handle the
arrays too. Jeroen pointed this out once before.
