IMHO the non-Debian installation is so easy now that they aren't
needed. When I first made the packages I agreed that they would be
enough because any more would be too much data to add to Debian. Also,
some of the modules can only be distributed by crosswire because of
the licences.
Since them some other people have made modules for non-english texts
which have been accepted into Debian but those need to be done on a
case bycase basis.

Afair the Ichthux team might be packaging some more modules for their
distro so hopefully you can help them. I've cc'd them for ideas.
