I suspect that he is thinking of the license the modules are
distributed under (e.g. permission to distribute to CrossWire).

I don't think that this is likely to be a problem, since users are
allowed to use modules (even intended to).  There may be a suggestion
that it is format shifting, and I don't know what the CrossWire policy
on this is, but I wouldn't consider it any different from building an
index containing the content of the module for quick searching (which
CrossWire does).  There shouldn't be any distribution of the client
side data.
