Dear all,

My initial comments on this.

I'm not so sure the programming interface would be much different than 
accessing the parts of the study Bible as 5 different modules.  Our 
installers already allow datapaths to be grouped however we want; we 
just use a standard directory path like:


I wonder if we had 5 modules with config something like:



InstallMgr will already install everything is [ESVStudy] is installed 
because it installs DataPath and all subdirs.

The only issue I see is:
Frontends need to impl the Companion concept
InstalMgr needs some marker that these companion modules should not be 
offered by themselves. (probably)
