For what it is worth, all Bibles currently on eBible.org/sword/ are OK to use with both Sword and Sword++ and any front ends compatible with either. It is wise to check every conf file, though, regardless of repository source, to see where there might be a problem with permission only for distribution via Sword but not derivative software. Troy's suggestion may be a good one to solve that issue and let both libraries exist in peaceful coexistence.

Sometimes a little healthy competition among friends can be a good thing.
