Matthew Henry's Commentary (Complete) is posted and ready for testing.  I
wouldn't consider it to be in a final state, so don't go through the 40mb
d/l unless you want to test it and won't mind re-d/ling when a final version
comes along.

The module only includes Genesis-John because that's as much as CCEL has
posted.  Acts-Rev should be forthcoming, and can be added when they are.

Most other Bibles abbreviate the Henry's Concise as MHCC and his Complete as
MHC.  Since MHC was already taken by the Concise in Sword, I named the
Complete MHCC.  This could be changed easily, of course, but it might
confuse users if we suddenly made MHC into the Complete.

The module is in ThML, so you'll need Sword 1.5.x.

I didn't want to subject the public to a large unfinished download without
making them aware of the fact that it is unfinished, so I created a tree
named beta under the raw directory on the FTP site and placed the module
there.  (ftp://ftp.crosswire.org/pub/sword/raw/beta/)  Just point your
installer to that path, or download manually.

I haven't really tested the module much since I can't get any of the real
frontends to compile, but the files look pretty good.
