Adding the OLBGRK and OLBHEB modules will not be considered now or ever. 
They aren't Thayer's or BDB. I would consider them to be basically 
worthless since it's impossible to know what is genuinely from 
BDB/Thayer and what is from OLB's contributors themselves. You can read 
the discussion from a few years ago if you really want to. But the issue 
of adding them to Sword now or in the future is really already settled.

Unlike the claimed copyrights on Gill, K&D, and other works that have 
basically been scanned, OCRed, and proofed, I would consider OLB's work 
on OLBGRK and OLBHEB to be of a genuinely creative nature and thereby 
legitimately protected by copyright.
