Well, the problem is that MacSword will still be around and needs to  
be around because it gives pre Tiger support.
I don't know if there is WinSword, there is GnomeSword and yes, some  
applications that are the fronend to the Sword library have the token  
as part of their name.
But I don't like "MacSword 2" or something. Actually I would like to  
be more abstract also with the name.
