SWORD plays fine on Windows if you point SWORD_PATH to where the
modules are installed.  Handling whether they are writable by the user
is a system administration issue, and should be left that way.  The
only time when a user won't have write access to the Program Files
folder is when they are on a recent NT version of Windows, in which
case, ~/.sword notation works perfectly well to place the files in
C:\Users\<User name>\.sword
