Hi all (especially Troy ;)

I have a problem with C++ and Sword.
In BibleTime we redesigned the backend and are implementing it now.

We want to derive our classes directly from SWModule, but IMHO this is not 
possible. But perhaps I think this because I don't know C++ very well.

We want to have a class called CSwordBibleModuleInfo, which should derive 
from SWText.
If I want to do this I would have to reimplement SWMgr::Load() so that 
CSwordBibleModuleInfo objects are created.
But Sword creates the modules in this way:

	SWModule* module = new RawText(...);

I don't know how to change this without creating dozens of new classes like 
We have the classes to divide the classes into three types (Bibles, 
commentaries and Lexicons), so we don't want to add classes like 

Troy, do you know a solution how to solve this problem?

Thank you very much!
