This is really good to know. I was recently looking at the "Holy Bible"
software you can get from cathnet.org here:
This is a fork of Sword for windows I think which includes the DRC and
CCB as Bible modules, not Gen book modules. I believe this is not
intended to be a general purpose fork and "regular" Bible modules would
not work (but I have not tried).

This is the best news of all. I have been promoting both BibleDesktop
and FireBible locally and the one sticky point is the fact that no
Catholic Bibles are available. DM, I had been meaning to talk to you
about these Bibles for some time now; if we could get this into JSword
1.7, that would be great! You can count on me for assistance, but I
suspect these are changes you would like to make yourself :)
