For my two-penn'orth, I'd say go for it!  Any means that makes modules 
- especially quality ones like NET - available to all has to be wonderful!  
Install manager is useful, but not vital, and wouldn't be a problem for 
the majority of users.  All the plain downloads have directory paths in 
the zip file, so it only needs extracting with paths into the Sword path to 
work.  Inserting the cypher-key is a little more complicated, but I'm sure 
most users are capable of using a plaintext editor and following a 
simple instruction.

I know it's a pity - but I can well understand copyright holders wanting 
to be in control.  Let them in - let them use the world's finest piece of 
bible software.

God bless,
