For myself, when I first encountered Sword tools a year ago and wanted
to start generating modules, by dumb (bad) luck I happened to open up
a GBF module (and didn't realize there was >1 format) and so produced
that; then I got confused about GlobalOptionsFilter and grep'd mods.d,
found ThML was far-and-away the majority format, and incorrectly
deduced that of course ThML must be the preferred format.  It wasn't
until later that I learned that a different preference existed.  I've
been doing ThML since.  Perhaps someday I'll re-target for OSIS but so
far I have sensed little need to do so.

I filed a bug late last evening.  The tracker is at
You can arrange to track a single bug report if you wish, though you
do have to be known to SourceForge.

Understood.  In fact I already noted this in the bug report.
