I'm cross-posting to sword-devel, since I think some good opinions might 
be offered from there as well.

my suggestions (figure about 1.5M per Bible):

              such as the RSV, ASV, ISV, BBE, or GodsWord)

I think all commentaries are doctrinal, but based partly on the download
stats, I think the following texts should be considered for inclusion:

en: MHC (possibly also Scofield, JFB--could substitute MHCC if we run low 
         on space)

grc: StrongsGreek
he: StrongsHebrew
en: Easton

daily devotionals:
en: SME

en: Josephus
