Please bear in mind that Sword is a library, and the module format is
evolving. The ONLY reliable way to access Sword modules is to use the Sword
API to interface with the library. Any attempt to access all the Sword
modules directly will have to reproduce most of the Sword library and will
then be left behind as Sword evolves. If they are any advantages with trying
to work around the modules these drawbacks surely outweigh them.
