I am wondering anyway whether it would be efficient for PersonalJava to
have the whole bible stored as a single XML document, that is parsed
(either as a tree or using events). I would think that treating each verse
as a document would require less parsing, and only the required verses
need to be read from "disk".

Good to see that all the other libraries are not required.

I think I would have done the same :)
