[sword-devel] Module Installation

I'm adding a module downloader to JSword, and not being totally sure how 
to get it to work.

The current algorithm goes like this:

- download "mods.d.tar.gz" from the given directory
- unpack, and select a module
- from the config file for a module pick the DataPath element
- download all the files from that directory (without recursing
   down the tree) into a directory of the same name within your
   sword modules tree.

However this fails because many of the DataPath elements point off into 
space somewhere.

Does anyone know the right algorithm?
