A sword module is a collection of characters commonly known as text 
gathered in such a way that they are meaningfull to any program accessing 
them through the Sword API.

These can be translations of the Bible or related works.

Neither side will have an exclusive right. If general distribution is not 
permitted I think it will be hard to get it into a free sword module.
