Ahh, this sounds pretty good.  I'd like to play with it and see what would happen.  I think it would be trivial to get it working in PocketSword.  :)

I'm slightly concerned about the size of the Bible module, though!!!  That would be my main issue.  Altho, it could stream the audio?  But, yes, downloading the module . . .  I'd want to finish rewriting the PocketSword module downloader first (it's way more efficient, faster & easier to be downloading modules in their ZIP format, so I'm wanting to install modules in PS the same way they do in JSword - simply downloading the zipped module!).

thanks, ybic
