Peter, I will honour your request with respect to the modules whose
distributions are restricted to Crosswire.
Please understand that the distribution rights of all modules not
exclusively restricted to Crosswire are set by the Copyright owner and so
as long as the licenses are being honoured you have no authority to try to
control downstream usage as this list has already clarified.
