Oh sorry -- that's a misunderstanding and a whole different can of
worms... :-) I was referring to modules we consider orthodox, but not
in a "perfect" state of conversion. I've been guilty myself of not
releasing something for a long time because I always thought "I'm
going to finish this up soon...". My message was just meant as a
reminder to not fall in to this trap.

Release Early And Release Often. :-)

As for non-"orthodox" or openly non-christian books -- I believe these
belong under the carpet. They can always be referred to when somebody
explicitly asks for them. Although I do think that the modules alone
are not so valuable a tool for Muslims/Mormons that they would really
use Sword as a tool to spread their faith.
