I think a great thing that could happen is that some people proof the texts 
for Sword and certify them clean, complete and PD. One way to proof the 
texts is to run it through a text reader. Listen to the text reader while 
reading a printed source. Another way is to scan another printed source, 
OCR and spell check it, then run one file against another in a document 
comparison program.
