Hey Guys!
	I'm really looking forward to seeing the CE app.  Just a few comments 
that might help.

	If you are using the default SWMgr constructor then there is a fairly 
useful algorthim implemented for finding books.  You can read about 
these in the INSTALL doc in the root of the source tree, but in short, 
this is one way to take advantage of this, and is what we use on the 
Zaurus handheld:

We install a file at /etc/sword.conf which contains:


This tells the sword engine to look for it's base modules in 
/usr/share/sword, and also search the SD memory and CF memory slots for 
books (they are located at the paths seen above)

Obviously these path can be changed, the concept is useful.  This allows 
searching of any inserted memory chip for books.  It also allows me to 
keep a small set of default books installed in ram.

Hope this is useful.
