 From my perspective, it is not CrossWire's policy. I have spent quite a 
bit of time documenting the conf, OSIS and osis2mod. All on the wiki. I 
want to make it easier to create modules.

WRT tei2mod, I wrote it. Chris enhanced it. It is a rather braindead 
program, looking for start and end of entries. One thing that it does, 
it recommends conf entries based on the module it creates. I plan to 
change osis2mod to do this later.

The suggestion to have the "main" be separated from the code is a good one.

If someone would like to step up to it, we want to have a web based 
module creation facility.
Fill out a form, submit an OSIS or TEI file and get a module back.
Any takers?

In Him,
