[sword-devel] FAQ on CrossWire.org

The FAQ on the main site should be culled from the one on the CrossWire
developers' wiki.

PocketSword is already mentioned there.

According to the Wayback Machine, the first archived copy of crosswire.org
is dated Feb 20, 2002.

Found easily via the Firefox addon called 
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2570 Resurrect Page .

Thus CrossWire must have been founded prior to that, perhaps a few months
Troy can give you the exact date.
