A common (and understandable) response. Chris maintains the Windows build
of the tools used to create modules. The link is somewhere in the archives,
though obviously any binary build could be dated relative to SVN.

I don't know anything about Bible Tool, except that is maintained by the
same group that maintains BibleCS as I understand. It is usually very close
to "feature complete" in relation to the library, so if any of the
applications support it, it's a good bet that Bible Tool will.
