I'm thinking less of us, internally, where we are apt to jump on this
list and spout off about our problems and more about self-published
modules from someone which we might never see here.  See, for example,
the discussions about GoBible and Pathway and possibly including more
generalized SWORD material directly from the translators themselves.
While we will want all our works to be correct, our utilities should
be able to comprehend both forms.

A general maxim I learned about network applications but applicable in
general to the producer/consumer system is: be very strict in what you
produce but very lenient in what you consume.
