Thanks David!  This looks very much like what I want to do for the first 
stage of what I'm thinking about.  Is it alright if I email you directly 
for further information?

This does sound very much like what I am interested in doing, but 
unfortunately, you seem to be using WeSay, which appears to have some 
deficiencies in it's Linux versions that will make it unusable for 
editing a work of this kind (no support for non-latin scripts, and 
issues copying and pasting non-ascii characters).  I'm afraid that I use 
Linux exclusively, and my ability to contribute to this project would be 
severely limited.
