I think it is likely that Victor will find that the message he is trying to 
uncover is the one we already have. But, in the process he is going to look 
very closely at what to most would seem to be minutia, and he is likely to 
find some real insights there that most would miss. Unfortunately, a lot of 
his effort will probably produce little that he could not have already 
gotten, with a lot less work, through what we already have.

I know someone that likes Panin's NT. Not because it has something 
different to say, but, because the same old messages reads well. I think 
Panin's ideas were nuts, but at least it kept him in the book and someone 
else has a translation he likes to read.

There are going to be others. People with Bible codes, hidden messages and 
various linguistic schemes will want to use the computer for their projects 
and the SWORD Project is going to attract them. "What is the chaff to the 
wheat?" Jer 23:28. I plan to leave them alone. Even if I thought they may 
be tares, I would still leave them alone. The neophyte row is a hard row to 
hoe. Someone else can have that job.
