a) Strictly from a programming POV, it will be much easier to go from
HTML 2 Sword module.
b) The HTML2Sword Module code is distributed under the GNU GPL.
c) The e-Sword license prohibits reverse engineering. I wouldn't be
surprised if Rick considered an e-Sword2Sword Project tool to be
reverse engineering, and a violation of the e-Sword license.
All of which is a roundabout way of saying you are much safer legally,
in creating a tool that ignores the existence of e-Sword.
A Fork requires:
Seven systems with:
1+ GHz Processors
2+ GB RAM
0.25 TB Hard drive space
