Welcome to the list, Skip.

I've been wanting to make a commentary module from your Calvin's
Commentary work for the longest time, but it's going to be pretty
difficult to specify which blocks correspond to which verses in some

Ignore the TODO list on CrossWire. :)  All that stuff is either
completed or no longer necessary.

Check the Task List and the Bug & Feature Request trackers on the
sourceforge project page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sword.
Or see the list archive
(http://www.mail-archive.com/sword-devel@crosswire.org/) for a short
discussion of some of these tasks.

Or you could look into doing some of the general book stuff that I think
Troy propsed to you.

You can also come by #sword on irc.openprojects.net to chat about
development stuff.  There are frequently one or two of us in there.
