xml2gbs is included in the SVN repository. thml2mod has never existed. 
Maybe you're thinking of thml2gbs, which was the basis of xml2gbs.

It has never been the case that ThML commentaries could be imported 
directly to Sword format. I think ThML is suitable for free form books, 
which is why we have the xml2gbs tool. But there is no way to predict 
the layout of a ThML text that would make it possible to import a ThML 
commentary into the rather strict format required by Sword commentaries 
& Bibles.
