    The path logic to lookup books is already very complicated.  We 
recently conceded to add a specialized lookup for ../library/mod.d/, per 
your suggestion.  Afterward, we also added a less intrusive look for 
./sword.conf, which allows one to specify any DataPath and any number of 
AugmentPath entries.  These mechanisms should be sufficient without us 
further complicating the lookup logic in the engine with more use 
specific iterations.  I hope you understand.  I'm sure DM can better 
articulate his implementation for BibleDesktop, as you've already 
mentioned, should help with your installation logic.

    Thanks for your understanding,
