I believe that you'll have to write it completely from scratch.  The
only source code i'm aware of is the proprietary development toolkit
from Parsons.  There are good specs, though.  CrossWire has a mirror of
the STEP site, since theirs has been down for a while:
http://www.crosswire.org/bsisg/.  Start at the 'Info for Software
Developers' section.
