J. Tyler Nichols started such a project (Newton X Press) around April
of last year. You can see some of the discussion here on NewtonTalk in
the archives:


I believe his work was based on the developer documentation and some
of Eric W. Brown's (of <>) reference
materials originally published for a CS course at BU. Unfortunately,
Eric's BU page is down, but it looks like it was grabed once by the
Internet Wayback Machine:


He also developed and maintains the Newton Book Reader Extension for
Firefox <>, so he hopefully still
has the info archived elsewhere as well.

Tyler went silent part way into the project and his site is down as
well, but a couple of his news pages are cached by Google:
