Sorry for not making myself clear enough. I was referring to the whole task
of integrating a new kind of module, maps and so forth, into sword. Neither
am I an expert in this area, nor would I have the free time to do this; yet
unless sombebody is willing to invest himself
here, I don't believe that much is gonna happen. This is simple, but true.
