[sword-devel] Xiphos Personal Commentary into PocketSword

From the user's point of view of raising this issue, 
even if "Personal" commentary is not portable, it does
 not bother me at this case.

I just need a tool to build a Sword "commentary" module
with an full Bible resources environment, like parallel view
, Dictionaries and other commentaries.

if porting Personal commentary is too global in Sword to fix,
adding a conversion tool in Xiphos to produce Sword Commentary 
Module from Personal Module will work for my situation.

Thank you.
