The STEP utilities were started before we had a 'General Book'
driver for the engine. Now that such a driver exist, it should be fairly
trivial to write a STEP2GBS utility. Conversion was the aim of those
tools, but you could also attempt to write a couple new low level STEP
drivers to read the books directly. The larger issue will be with
converting RTF to something more general like OSIS.
Have a look at the existing conversion utilities: sword/utilities,
and also at the low level drivers at, e.g. sword/src/modules/text/rawtext
(driver reading raw textfiles as data source). The conversion path seems
to me a much easier approach, accomplishable in a much shorter time.
Hope this helps,
