[jsword-devel] Wrapping non OSIS-ID in next cell

Agreed. I think there are two issues... One is with the headers that JSword
adds as you read the file in. The other with the missing verses. One of the
suggestions from Tyndale is that it wouldn't take too long to amend the
modules to have those verses in there if that makes sense. For example, I'm
getting the impression the "missing" verses in Acts in the ESV are actually
present with 0-content.

The other option is that we can try and track the "current reference" as
best we can. Store the anything that seems ahead of time in memory until we
output it. That would add a bit of a performance overhead (parsing of keys)
and a bit of memory overhead, but I'm guessing not that much in the grand
scheme of things.
