By decent data sets, we mean electronic Bibles that have not been
artificially forced into the default KJV v11n.

i.e. That accurately represent the v11n found in the printed editions of
each French translation.

FreBBB           French Bible Bovet Bonnet (1900)
FreCrampon   La Bible Augustin Crampon 1923
FreKhan         La Bible de Zadoc Khan (OT only)
FreMartin       French Bible Martin (1744)
FrePGR           Bible Perret-Gentil et Rilliet
FreSegond     French Traduction de Louis Segond (1910)

CrossWire Beta has
FreJND           French John Nelson Darby (1975)
