I've committed the .confs to SVN (in the sword-tools repository) and am 
doing some updates presently.

These aren't RTF.

There's nothing wrong with them, per se, but I find them a bit annoying, 
so I will probably delete them so that we can have 1 line per entry

I will probably remove all of these. chamorro.conf is a particularly 
good example of a particularly bad .conf file.

This is how Unicode is encoded in RTF, so I have no problem. I should 
have mentioned previously that it's "\u{num}?", where {num} is a signed 
16-bit number, expressed in decimal.

It should be limited to About, so I'll fix anything outside of About.
