Thank you John for speaking up for many.
In my opinion this argument has so much weight like almost no other could 
have. I personally see sword and the related projects like BibleTime as 
_servant_ projects, especially for missionaries and poorer christians. That 
is why we should listen carefully to people like John.

Now: the sword installation difficulties can be solved!
Resulting from several discussions on sword-devel I propose that we 
reconsider the InstallMgr development.
Let us concentrate on one platform-independent version (AFAIK the gtk fork is 
already) instead of developing 2 separate versions. With this tool improved 
we can make installation of sword modules and needed files a point-and-click
