GnomeSword does this for both sword:// and bible:// equivalently,
implemented by creating needed GConf keys in /desktop/gnome/url-handlers.

There has never been a standard defined for what should be done with
sword:// and bible://, which created a vacuum to be filled by individual
implementers, so we've each done something appropriate for our
respective environments.
