list someone wondering if people were still working on it - with the
recommendation Sword developers should just adopt Sword specific
If so, I understand the practicality, but its too bad all of the .conf
stuff couldn't be contained in the module so we could do away with
having to generate .conf files apart from the modules' osis (or if its
