There seems to be a 50MB limit for IndexedDB in Firefox (can be extended 
via user interaction) and an unlimited storage in Chrome (you also have 
to ask the user). If you can store sword modules in indexedDB, you still 
have to read them.

Did anybody try to read a sword module with javascript? Where do I find 
some documenation about the internal module format and how to access the 
data inside (without using the the c++ sword library)?
