That's not true. It would imply invalidating everything that we have done 
together at crosswire.

That's not true either.
Our suggestions may have been ambiguous. We didn't intend to say "Hey! Let's 
drop the Sword engine and start doing our own cool stuff!". We wanted to say 
"Hey! Let's talk about extending the Sword engine to do new cool stuff!" That 
may have been unclear, but I hope that the latter is allowed in a Sword 
Developer's Collaboration Forum.

That is partly true. Moving ahead is not always easy.
