My point is not about duplication of front ends.  One of the features 
Troy implemented in BibleCS allows it to play nicely with other 
installed front ends, and share the installed books, without duplicating 
them.  Doing the same on the flash drive would be especially helpful, 
because memory is much more limited in that context.
