Recent versions of Xcode on OSX 10.7 and 10.8 fail to compile 3 of the extension modules in Mac/Modules: the modules for fm, qd and qdoffs.

That's because those extensions wrap APIs that are long deprecated and are no longer present.

The attached patch "fixes" the miscompilation by making most of the body of the extension empty when compiling with the 10.7 (or later) SDK.

This changes the API of these extension modules, but that cannot be helped because the platform APIs that are wrapped by these extensions are no longer present.

(Patch is not relevant for python 3.x because these extensions have been removed in python 3.0)

LGTM.  I've committed the patch along with expanded warnings in the Standard Library doc pages for "Mac OS X specific services" and "Mac OS Toolbox Modules".
