I think so. So, basically, I can just add tags to the VPL format:

Mat 1:16 ...
Mat 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David, <transChange 
type="added">are</transChange> fourteen generations; ...
Mat 1:18 ...

and note that in my conf file, and let the encoder will do the rest.

So the modules are stored in an internal format that has some flexible 
resemblance to other standards (OSIS/GBF/etc.), not just some sort of 
packaged version of the source?
