I have looked at it in the past. As an English speaker, I'm not sure how
interested I personally am in non-English texts (they may be the originals,
but they probably lack wide appeal). Ones like Liddell-Scott might be more
useful, but again I'm not sure.
Another collection I looked at was the MIT Classics collection (
http://classics.mit.edu/), which contains a number of public domain English
translations (and I checked with them a year and a half ago and they said to
the best of their knowledge the translations were completely public domain
and I could use them for whatever I wanted). Some of them relate history
that is referenced sometimes in Bible study, and I would sometimes like to
see the original than just accept the bite sized chunks I am given. Others
would be more used for (possibly reliable) background information.
