Sword does have support for extrabiblical literature through its "general 
book" facility. You could create general book modules for the works you 
mentioned, insert keywords to indicate topics and then use Sword's search 
facilities to find relevant entries. I don't know about other frontends, but 
BibleTime offers to search in multiple modules at the same time.

Is that not what you need?
