Did you want to tighten up the build-dependency on libsword-dev before I
build and upload it?

As far as xiphos, I can take care of that on.

Your uploads are only accepted if one of the following two conditions
is met:

 1. you are a Debian Developer with a key in the Debian keyring
 2. you are a Debian Maintainer with a key in the Debian Maintainer
    keyring and the package has the the DM-Upload-Allowed header set to
    yes in debian/control

Otherwise, the upload must still be sponsored (which I am happy to do).

If you are able to upload it yourself, then you still need to run it
through lintian, debdiff it against the previously uploaded version, run
it through piuparts, and so on.
