Wrt the not display of book Doofus 1.1 or even the existing Malachi
3.22 - if I remember correctly the GB av11n implementation was added to
Xiphos at the same time when Xiphos added code to _not_crash_ on av11n
modules. Xiphos remained unable to show any KJV v11n external content
for significant time after that. My best guess is that the restrictions
were never removed in the matter of GBav11n.

As far as CrossWire is concerned I am currently the person in charge of
allowing any modules on. It would be easy to implement restrictions as
to when and how we were willing to accommodate GBav11n. IBT is
similarly tightly controlled. Xiphos - Karl can comment upon that. Net
does not add anything other than what we offer them. Leaves us with
potential new repos. In the case of the one new you, Troy and I have
discussed, I see little reason to worry.
I think the existence of mapping code for common v11ns (or absence of
it in the case of GBv11n) is a powerful argument to keep abuse limited.

The problem with the French versification is seemingly that there is no
valid all encompassing French versification - all are higgledipiggledy
confused and arbitrarily constructed. So, no versification will deal
successfully with this. Danish might be ok. It is about 2 modules only
though and I am not yet clear how similar they are to each other. The
rules Chris set were there must be substantial need for a new v11n
otherwise it makes no sense dt the punishment each individual v11n
gives during startup and for memory control purposes. Not sure if this
concern still applies.
