I've been keeping up and think the progress looks great.  I am really
excited about the prospect of helping out with this stuff once I get a
break from other obligations.  

I would love to get your code up on our CVS server, but we would have to
wait until Troy can get an account set up for you, etc.

It's not a good idea to ask the mailing list for name suggestions. :)

up with.  And the one that everyone finally does decide they like will
be a registered trademark.  (Ahh... The memories.)

iSword might be somewhat inaccurate since it doesn't really have
anything to do with the internet (not that the iPod or iMovie have very
much to do with the internet).  You can also scan through the mailing
list archives to see some of the name proposals for the Windows frontend
that were discussed some months back.
