[sword-devel] HTML-based Windows Front End?

Would there be any interest amongst the Sword developer's community to
develop a new front end for Sword that would be based off of HTML display
rather than the current one with its RTF-base? I realize that there already
is BibleStudy to supplement BibleCS, but the current 1.0 release of
BibleStudy is a bit dated. When I did a check-out from CVS for it, it would
not compile against the newest versions of the Sword library. What I am
thinking of would be a complete rewrite, hopefully using the wxWidgets, as
BibleStudy aimed for. I have been experimenting recently with wxMozilla,
which is a wrapper for Gecko within wxWidgets which makes the Gecko engine
surprisingly simple to use. I would like to start development on a new
client some time in the next few weeks and have a first pass at it out by
the end of August, hopefully.
Is there other support for this within the community? I noticed in the
ancient archives of the Sword developers, someone had proposed this idea,
but it seems to have died off fairly rapidly. Let me hear some feedback!
