Complex commentaries I have seen will re-run a chapter or book several
times - synopsis, in detail and in more detail etc. And then throw a few
extra articles in on subjects raised by the text. And right now we are
hard pressed to cover that easily. That is right. So commentaries and
Bible text are/should be ideally different.

I would guess though - and I am far from sure if this makes a blind bit
of difference in terms of code saving, if the inheritance was the other
way round - SWText inheriting from SWCom and basically offering a
simplified version of the same if this would not be a possible way to

In general, it would be useful if either drivers would allow more
complexity - study bibles are pretty hard to implement completely.
