I've never programmed in it, being a C/C++/Perl/Python/Shell/Delphi/Asm/... 
man myself :-)

In any case, I'd much prefer a command-line tool that can be scripted (ie, 
called from a Makefile, etc).  Perl or Python would be ideal for the job.

Now that I have the ear of the upstream maintainer, may I point out a couple 
of things?

1. On your web page http://www.ebible.org/web/, the websword.zip link is

2. Do you provide an archive somewhere of the old versions of the source
   code?  Alternatively, do you have a publicly-readable source code
   repository (such as Subversion)?

The reason for Question 2 is that it would be nice to see what has changed 
from release to release of the source code (ie, any textual changes, 
formatting changes, etc.).  A changelog may well be sufficient, but if you 
use a source code repository system, it would save you the effort of writing 
it by hand.

Yours truly,
