[sword-devel] wxBible using cross-platform wxWidgets?

Just curious ... has there been previous discussions of using the
wxWidgets cross-platform library for Bible software? I looked over the
past several years of sword-devel archives and didn't see anything
other than a passing mention or two ... (but it wasn't all that of an
exhaustive search.)

I've been getting some experience with wxWidgets as part of the
Audacity SermonEditor, and am so far impressed. Would there be any
interest in a wxBible POC (proof of concept) that used the sword-api?

>From their FAQ:
The wxWidgets 2 licence is essentially the L-GPL (Library General
Public Licence), with an exception stating that derived works in
binary form may be distributed on the user's own terms. This is a
solution that satisfies those who wish to produce GPL'ed software
using wxWidgets, and also those producing proprietary software.
