I pulled trunk - is that supposed to be the latest version, or is 1.4 branch
newer?  It still fails to compile against the current SVN of sword,
complaining of the sword::VerseKey class lacking the NewIndex() function on
line 186 of SwordSearching.mm.  I don't know if that method has been pulled
out since the version MacSword 1.4 and, if so, what method to replace it
with now.

I finally found their basic introduction documentation, which starts with an
explanation of their Cocoa development model - so it looks like that's
finally taken care of.
