Personally I think this is the *only* one that should go in.  It gives 
functionality without being tied to a specific religion.  And it's small! 
For a distribution that's good. :)

While definatly good choices I truely think these would be better served 
sitting in the master repository.  Maybe with a installer or proper docs 
pointing users here.  

> 1 commentary - Matthew Henry Concise (~1.4MB)
> KJV - it's standard (~2.2MB, less without Strongs ref.)
> 1 more modern translation - WEB (~1.4MB)
> Strongs references - Standard greek and Hebrew references 
> (~800k)
> Dictionary - Eastons or Naves or both (~1MB and ~700k)

and also keeps the legal issues out of the distribution. :)

just my 2cents
