The current focus is all on whether the engine can be recompiled in different
platforms, each with its own idiosyncrasies. That's natural at this stage.
Most of the developers are responding in like manner.

I''m rather more concerned with module development, and how this fares after
the software release.

Unless the testing phase of the release candidate includes checking whether
a module built with the SWORD utility (e.g. osis2mod) from the same software
build, and is then tested as a module in a front-end that has been
recompiled with the release candidate of the SWORD engine, how can anyone be
confident that the software is ready to be released?

And how many features does such a module need to have to create such

Does anyone disagree with this as being a sensible requirement?

Best regards,
