In the long term, this will be very helpful, and is much appreciated. 
However, for benefits in the short to moderate time frame, please 

Could swordlib's SWMgr::findConfig be revised to ** also ** look for 
modules in:
../The SWORD Project

A typical scenario:
An earlier version of Windows sword.exe was installed at:
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\sword.exe
and modules are installed at:
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\mods.d
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\modules

Now suppose another CrossWire front-end is installed at:
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\NewFrontEnd\NewApp.exe

This seems like a very typical situation, since for many years, 
modules have by default been installed as subdirectories of the 
installation directory for sword.exe (see scenario above)

Thus, it doesn't really help NewApp.exe to have the sword engine look 
in ../library .... it is as (or more) applicable to have it look in:
../The SWORD Project
