	I'm excited about your work.  We've had a few people interested in 
doing an XUL frontend for SWORD, and the XPCOM wrappers will help in 
this process as well (unless that is actually what you are wanting to 
eventually do, then you'll all be interested in doing the same thing). 
There are a few good simple examples in sword/examples/cmdline and 
sword/tests.  But please feel free to post your questions.  Maybe we 
could expand the examples that come with the library.

	Blessings in your efforts,
