The SDK is basically for Cocoa (Objective-C). So the existing work on 
MacSword or its successor could perhaps be leveraged towards writing a 
new UI for the iPhone, but I don't think there's any JRE on the iPhone, 
so JSword is probably out of the question.

I'd love to see a better interface for Sword Web on various devices with 
limited screen size (e.g. iPhone/iPod touch, Eee, Nokia tablets, or even 
an HTPC running on a 50" screen but viewed from 10 feet).
