Yeah, that doesn't help me either.  We abandoned GenBook Bible support
in favor of the VersificationMgr system.  I am not against adding a
per-module v11n mechanism, but I fear it will be used. :)  And it
shouldn't be used. :)  Using this basically allows people to take
shortcuts bypassing the analysis of the versification of their module
and trying to identify it most closely with a common v11n.  This is
important as it allow us to display the module with v11n mapping across
different systems.  We discussed ways one could also use the mechanism
appropriately: selected the closest common v11n and supplying mappings
for the verses which aren't covered by that v11n.  But my experience
would lead me to speculate that if we allow custom v11n, then everyone
will use it for their module-- even if there are only a couple
differences in v11n between their module and a common v11n system,
because they won't need to spend the time to analyze and learn about
their text and v11ns which we support well.  Allowing v11n loading per
module is fairly straightforward to implement and I believe JSword might
already have a file format they support.

Regarding this thread.  If we need to add 2 new v11ns for French and
Danish, then we need to spend the time to do the research and add a
versification and mapping data.
