There is an API primer on the website under
http://www.crosswire.org/sword then selecting 'Developement', then
'SWORD API Primer'.

I'll try to throw together some UML diagrams for the basic API, and data
flow diagrams for the processing of module source all the way from disk
to display through the class framework.  We've been needing something
like this for a while now.

	I'll post soon.
