    Great! Would you like to use my temporary version as a way to satisfy the 
impatient until such time as the real one is ready?

    Yes, I know. That's what you told me back on Feb. 5th. :) No offense, but 
I just got tired of waiting, especially since I've been asking Crossway for 
some electronic version that I can use since May of 2004! (The response then 
was that the OSIS version would be ready sometime in the summer of 2004.)
    The web version is (unfortunately) not practical for my purposes. I 
generally pay for internet access by the minute. If I am doing a study, I do 
not want to think about how much it is costing me, especially since most of 
the time online I will be reading, rather than actively surfing.
    If you're not comfortable distributing a temporary module, how about I 
just post instructions on how to convert a e-Sword module to a Sword module? 
That is perfectly legal in every country, does not circumvent any encryption, 
is a sterling example of fair use, and will hopefully generate more interest 
in module creation.
