[sword-devel] New development on Mac

	I'd like to suggest that we use a more Mac friendly location for  
modules than ~/.sword. The Mac way seems to be to put resources under  
~/Library/Application Support. I'd like to suggest having the module  
directory be there and called Sword. Currently this is where  
BibleDesktop/JSword put modules.

Also, I'd like for modules to be installed in a more typical SWORD  
way. That is, the modules are stored in a library containing mods.d  
and modules rather than individually (as in KJV.swd containing its  
own mods.d and modules)

In Him,
