Perhaps, but at least it is service at some level. As to InstallMgr: in 
place of the file on the Crosswire server a link to the site with the 
module could be used. InstallMgr would have to either access the other 
site, or present the user with an option to bring up the site in a browser. 
This would involve some changes in InstallMgr and maintenance of the of 
site links, but it sounds doable to me, at least in theory.

Another change in InstallMgr that may someday be helpful is a way to 
download and/or update settings for other servers, such as mirrors and 
servers of special modules not found on Crosswire. Having the mirrors 
automatically added to InstallMgr would be nice for those times that 
Crosswire is down.
