OK, I took these, used osis2mod, and copied the existing jap*.conf files
with modifications appropriate to what I had generated and where I put
them.  I used -v NRSV due to the presence of e.g. 3John.1.15.  The
modules' only textual feature is glosses -- no strongs, morph, or lemmas.

How they look: http://karl.kleinpaste.org/.../japanese-new-gloss/

I don't read Japanese.  Someone else will have to say whether they're
good or bad.  If they're bad, we'll need to know how to differentiate
good from bad, pretty from ugly, tolerable from intolerable.
