or unencrypt the modules?

Encrypted modules are encrypted for a good reason: to respect wish of the author and to respect copyright. You should not seek to overcome this.
theWord is the only software that goes into great pains to ensure that no module is encrypted unless it is really required by the author/publisher, please respect that.

Agree.

Almost, but don't quite agree fully. I can think of at least one other "vendor" of Bible software that the above statement applies to.

True! I can think one too, so i have to take back the 'only' statement there, sorry

But maybe your original statement was correct ...

IIRC, BB didn't necessarily have to go through "great pains". You tracked down an efficient high speed algorithm written in Delphi that could be used by TW. Then the BB author "ported" that Delphi code in C++ to link with BB. And then BB integrated the encryption with zlib compression?

Well, this is probably poor choice of words....
The 'great pains' does not really refer to the effort that was put, but to the respect being given to PD texts not being unnecessarily encrypted.
