[sword-devel] Module - Jonathan Edwards

 	I believe (Joachim?) we have Python bindings for SWORD in the 
bindings directory of the source.  RawGenBooks driver supports the 
'Writable' interface, so you should be able to make a few calls to the API 
to add an entry.  I realize this doesn't offer you any specific help, but 
though it might give you ideas where you might look.


PS. bindings/swig/, tests/treeidxtest.cpp, include/swmodule.h:/write
