I've wanted to look at two or three "translations" (ie. English next
to Greek) before, but have used Bibletime for that. It's nice to hear
that Gnomesword does support this and I will have to read through the
./configure options better before the next recompile.

So far I like what I see. It is more stable on Linux and the ability
to see which modules have been updated is not one that I had seen

Thanks for all the work that went into this!
