I'd love to see what you have.

what are you running?  Linux or Windoze?
http://www.wincvs.org if you have windows.
Linux usually has it already there; from a shell try: type cvs, and see
if it returns something like:

	[bash]$ type cvs
	cvs is /usr/bin/cvs

Well, check out the filter in sword/src/modules/filters/
They are pretty straight forward and ugly-- speed over maintainablility
for these guys.  They bear a big load for the engine.  Profiling shows
most time spent here, usually.

If you'd rather work on the STEP Bible indexing, let's email more.
