Of course not, I am impressed that you understand it at all. All .4ht
files are generated from literate sources available here:

For example tex4ht.sty is generated from tex4ht-sty.tex. The problem
is that the literate sources don't contain much more info and the
literate programming environment that is used, ProTeXt,  is a bit
esoteric. So in most cases, I just fix issues in the .4ht files and
then I import them back to the literate sources.

I hope to take a look at this in August. I will have holidays, so I
should be able to find time for that.

I should add some testing for latex-dev and package updates to TeX4ht
sources as well, because now we catch regressions only from user
