Adding to what David has said:
The versification systems used for French Bibles are definitely not 
correct (in general).

If you would like to help and are able, suggest Bibles that represent 
the 'French' versification system. It would be even better to suggest 
Bibles for which some accessible electronic source exists.

If we get a decent dataset, we can include the French versification 
system in 1.8.0.
