I've got a ThML book importer written.  There's a screenshot of 
BibleTime with two books produced simply by running it on a pair
of ThML files at
http://www.chiasma.org/~chrislit/bible/bt-genbook2.jpg .

This adds about a hundred new books that we can use, virtually 
immediately.  And as new ThML books are added to CCEL (or old books are 
converted to ThML) those can also be used immediately.

As a bonus, the importer is written in C.  So it can be compiled and 
distributed to users (unlike the Perl scripts I use for most of my 
converters).  And it will be easy to integrate into other programs, such 
as InstallMgr--so that we can have it download directly from CCEL & 
generate the book on the fly.
