There is already a mechanism for installing copy-protected modules.
There is only one publication (in the German language, no less) that I
am aware of, however, that has taken advantage of this. American
publishers are more worried about locking in exclusives, and making
big bucks to bother with the Sword Project...

Well, there's PocketSword, and it also already has the means of
dealing with those copy-protected works.

I know you mean a "store", but I'm not sure how feasible that would
be. Worth looking into how that one module gets purchased, installed,
