I understand, but it would be nice to identify it better. People don't
neccessarily need to know right now what BibleCS means. It can be a mystery,
much like what we will be when the Master is done with us :) when we finish
the new protoype we can reveal the name's meaning. Or could we come up with
a unique name for the front end?

But when we seperate the frontend won't that be confusing that there are 2
sword projects?
