[sword-devel] intro + testing programs

it's really cool that you're very motivated to do something.
But I want to recommend that we syncronize our efforts and agree before
pursuing a special direction. Not that I don't want you to do something, but
I am not the only one on this list, and I am esp. not in charge here...
So Troy or Chris it would be cool if you could give some hints on what to do
when etc. Troy can also give you cvs write access if he wants to.
So IMO maybe you can just start with the compression thing now, give us these
statistics and then try to integrate it into sword if it fits our needs after
Troy explained how to do this most easily?
Anyway I'm glad you're here! Again I do not want to discourage you, but I
want everything to be in oder and unity here.
