Indeed! But it should be pointed out that all patches are not created 
equal. Submitted patches have to fit into Sword well. They can't disrupt 
other functions of Sword. And they can't have functions that are 
incompatible with planned functions.

That's why a patch that simply adds a few new books to Sword's existing 
canon would not be accepted. We already have a number of requirements 
for alternative v11n support and extending the existing system of static 
v11n would not suffice.

However, persons interested in working on (writing code for) alternative 
v11n support should certainly speak up and make it known to the other 
developers if they haven't already.
