Each module could be under copyright or not. Each module could come with 
various licenses or not. You need to satisfy the restrictions of each 
module individually. This is why the development of a universal sword 
exporter (export any module) will not be supported. The reverse is also 
true. The creation of modules by importing from other non-sword formats 
that may be used to distribute copyrighted texts for other software 
packages is not universally good (or bad) and so can't be done on a 
universal scale.
