My bias is GnomeSword next, followed by BibleTime.  I haven't announced
an ITP for BibleTime, as KDE isn't all in Debian yet.  I'm waiting on that
before I install a KDE environment and try out BibleTime.

OK, I'll try that.  It may be that InstallMgr isn't much use in the
package anyway (I say this without knowing what InstallMgr does) since
Debian has its own tools for managing installation of packages.
