Re: 5 years and it still won't compile.
Yeah, I agree. The module format is not the only thing that lacks documentation. While working with SWORD I learned a lot but mostly from asking questions in the mailing lists and looking through the code.
The documentation has actually improved a lot since we have the wiki which is about 2 years ago.

I don't actually had any need to understand the module format while working on MacSword. However I learned a little on the module formats while implementing the personal commentary file access in JSword and I can tell you there is no magic whatsoever and nothing is intentionally hidden from anyone.

After all this is an open source project and lives from the community and the work the people of the community are willing to spend.
You could go ahead and create wiki pages for the module format if you wish and do a documentation in a proper way other than the source codes.
