I want to call Sword from JavaScript and XSLT.

My first idea was to write Java wrappers around C++ interface, but then I 
realized that this is slow because of startup time (which is added at every 
web page reloading).

So I am going to write what I preliminary called Sword Server (any better 
names?), the program which will open a named pipe (FIFO file) or something 
similar and act like a database server between sword modules and scripts. I'm 
going to run this server on my Linux from my login script every time when I 

My question: should I register a new project at SF or Troy &K will just 
include this stuff into main Sword distribution?

BTW, diatheke can be then changed to use Sword Server instead of Sword API 
directly by the same reason (speed).

Any comments?
