A few weeks ago, I have created a conf file generator (confmaker.pl)
which is in sword-tools. It is a perl script which analyses a given OSIS
text and creates a conf file from it. It looks for certain tags and
creates the relevant OSIS filter options and creates some other entries.
Basically a conf file created with it works, but would always benefit
from some human interaction and augmentation.

To move on from here towards bibliography enytries we need to get some
clarity re direction of bibliography entries.

I do not really care about the exact format (though I still think bibtex
or some xml-ish format would be fine), but - whatever - I do propose to
restrict our support to a few important entries:

Author, Translator, Editor
Year of original publication
Place of original publication
Electronic publisher (i.e. CrossWire, Xiphos, etc)

Anything I forgot?
