'sysconfig' is used in our CSwordBackend class which inherits SWMgr. 
sysconfig is, as far as I know, a public data member of SWMgr. Here's 
the code:

/** Reload all Sword modules. */
void CSwordBackend::reloadModules(SetupChangedReason reason) {

	//delete Sword's config to make Sword reload it!

	if (myconfig) { // force reload on config object because we may have 
changed the paths
		delete myconfig;
		config = myconfig = 0;
		// we need to call findConfig to make sure that augPaths are reloaded
		findConfig(&configType, &prefixPath, &configPath, &augPaths, sysconfig);
		// now re-read module configuration files
	else if (config) {


It reloads the sword config in case it has been changed, e.g. the module 
data paths have been changed. I hope someone could help - I haven't 
written this and mgruner was the last one to edit this.
