Sounds good. Troy is ahead of us like always. ;)
But imo there should be only one code base in future (is this the case
already?) in order to combine all efforts.
And can there be static versions (rpm etc.) of it which don't require users
to have gtk installed? Or is this also already the case?

Would definitely be a good idea.
-install to ~/.sword or different places
-edit config files (set unlock key etc).
-i18n(), maybe using sword's capabilities?
-sync edited modules with those on crosswire for people who are allowed to do
These are just some thigs that came to my mind right now.
