[sword-devel] Schlachter 2000

The Schlachter 2000 translation is under recent copyright, which 
explains why it is no longer available for MyBible (the trademark 
violating one, not the PocketPC one). If any of the German developers 
felt motivated, I guess they could work to secure the rights to 
distribute and sell unlocks for this translation, but it's not a matter 
of simply converting the text.

PDF is maybe the worst format for source material, excluding scanned 
images. I've seen some plaintext editions of Schlacter 2000 online, but 
I believe they were lacking footnotes and text decoration and they were 
in the alte Rechtschreibung. But if we were given permission by the 
publisher, they could probably supply a good copy.
