[sword-devel] "Known bad, do not test" modules in Beta

Are you getting bug reports for them? What sorts of complaints are they 

I might mis-remember the problems with them, but I thought they were 
actually fairly usable and functional. Their main issue is that some of 
them are in TEI P4, which we no longer intend to target as a markup 
format (since we're going with TEI P5).

I was wondering if we could move these modules to the "experimental" repo?  That way users won't try to use them and instead find that they are broken and want to report them as so.  Or move them to somewhere where users can't readily access them (both through adding the "beta" repo to their install manager and through the use of the SWORD lib's swInstallMgr->refreshRemoteSourceConfiguration();).

Others that "sorta work" and just have some minor issues are fine, but those ones are the ones we want to be testing in the Beta repo.  the ones that are "Known bad, do not test" generally have major issues such that we don't even want to be reporting what's bad/wrong with them...  :)
