If someone has time to write up a proposal, that could be fun? Ideally it would be in C++ so as to be cross-platform for a majority of our apps? (Java could also work, but wouldn't benefit me! Altho once a spec was written, porting it back to C++ hopefully wouldn't be too hard.)

I have heard there is something like this for the iPad? At least, I bounced some emails back and forth with a guy who was doing one, but they weren't prepared to work within the GPL licence & so we stopped communicating when they realised they'd have to write their own Bible display code rather than integrate our stuff.
If anyone emails me privately, I may be inspired to look up those old emails...
