Welcome Zoltán!

I am curious how local storage is used and how much is available. We jump through all kinds of hoops to get libsword compiled and accessible on both iOS and Android for Bishop. It would be nice if maybe we could simply ship a WASM lib with Bishop for both platforms.

I noticed your patch is to our cmake build. Greg Hellings holds the pumpkin there, so I defer to his wisdom on inclusion. Greg, if you're busy, I am happy to commit if you have a brief look and "OK" the change.
