I will (eventually) release an updated WebstersDict module with linked 
keys.  I have a list of alternate spellings of words for which we 
already have entries, so they just need to be added as linked entries. 
I will try to move this up in my queue so that you can play with it 
sooner than later.

I also plan to redo the Thayer and BDB modules to index by Strong's 
number and by the word itself.  But this requires widespread frontend 
support for UTF-8 keys in lexica.
