Would there be room for a project to collaborate on creating some Greek 
and Hebrew dictionaries under some form of Creative Commons license, 
perhaps starting from Strongs and updating with more recent scholarship, 
to provide freely-distributable content that works with SWORD and can be 
translated freely into other languages? I know that's a bit far away 
from papyri and such, but it could serve the global church.
