But the maintainer had already said:

 I had originally not included the modules as they were not included in
 slang1, and I did not wish to add more stuff to Debian base, as libslang2
 is in base.
 But looking at the modules directory again, it looks sensible to include
 them in the new slsh package.
 I will include them in slsh in the next upload, with the modules
 going into /usr/lib/slang/v2/modules and the .sl files in /usr/share/slsh
 as per the Makefile install targets.

Jed itself does not use any modules, so if jed-extra is made to depend on
the slsh package, it should work. However, the gdbm module would still not be
included, and Dino Sangoi's iconv module will have to go somewhere as well, if
it's not going to be included in slang or jed.
