So, for the time being, anyway, we need both qpsword
and dagger binaries around.

I reflashed to OZ 3.5.3 last night and installed
dagger.  It seems pretty robust and clean.  One
problem I had though... I think I have several unicode
fonts installed, but when looking at Greek texts I
just she jiberish.  Do I need a different font, or
does dagger not support unicode?  I hope it's an easy
answer, as without support for Greek, I guess I'd have
to reflash back to a sharp based ROM so I can use

Thanks for the info Dan.  Very interesting.

To ask another question; does anyone regularly build
qpsword with a toolchain compatible with OZ?  I see
I'm unable to just run qpsword as is under openzaurus.
 I assume because of the toolchain issue.
