It might not be a bad thing (and this appears to be what you are already
doing) to officially support only OSIS for the modules available from the
SWORD Project, while still, at least for now, maintaining support for a few
other formats that make importing personal modules easier.  That makes it
much easier for a user to take advantage of the features of SWORD with text
which might not be public domain or freely distributable but is still
available.  I congratulate, and deeply thank, the team that is responsible
for maintaining the whole family of applications for a very high quality
product - and Troy for being an excellent and gracious leader!

It gives us the opportunity to develop a rich and full architecture
