e-Sword has K&D. It might be worth asking if we can use it. It's freely
downloadable and doesn't have any extra copyright notices. See
for Hendrickson edition.

Last time I read their pages it was volunteer based and anyone can
volunteer. They need OCR work and manual proofreaders. That kind of work
may be even more important than programming software. IMHO good modules
are crucial for us. We already have many good pieces of software (which
can and must be made better) - end users ask for something good to read.

Thayer's and BDB lexicons are something which I'd like to see also. They
are in public domain, but are they too difficult to move into electronic
format (using non-commercial volunteer work)?
