We have a name for this in the opensource world, it's called a code fork. All 
these programs are gpl so you can make your own versions do whatever you 
like. But generally out of respect all code forks get new names to avoid 
confusion and avoid messing with the rights to another. (ie the BibleTime 
team has intellectual property rights on the name BibleTime as a software 
product, the same goes for the Sword Project)

Be careful, the adversary can cause "wonders" to happen to and decieve people 
by this.
