[sword-devel] Getting rid of BibleCS

As someone who's used BibleCS since before there was a viable 
alternative on Windows, I've seen applications arise for other 
platforms, and the net.  Until recently, there wasn't such a push to 
establish the others on Windows, and I haven't tried most of them.  
Basically, I've had something that did (mostly) what I wanted, and 
didn't investigate further.

Now I really appreciate BPBible being available on PortableApps.  Being 
a young application, I've seen it make strides.  I replied to Ben's 
email, describing my issues, and he gave me a thoughtful reply.  Having 
found deficiencies in the past, I didn't really put 0.4 through its 
paces.  Today I looked at the new features list on your website, and see 
I should probably do that, next week when I have time in school.  He 
also said you're planning to address the issues of the Install Manager, 
and right-to-left support for Hebrew.

Since I'm spending a lot more time using my PortableApps, I may 
eventually switch to BPBible at home too, once it has all the features I 
need.  As of right now, thanks for your great efforts.
