[sword-devel] Roman Numerals to Arabic

The problem with turning a script like that on globally is that
occasionally regular words spell out roman numbers.  So, you might have
eleven running China if you just let it run amok.

David, almost certainly scripture references only run to 150 (151,2?) as
every reference I've seen romanizes the chapter, but leaves the verse in
arabic. It's following classic outline form: ROMAN, Alpha, roman, arabic,
greek, where ROMAN is testament, Alpha is book name, roman is chapter,
arabic is verse and greek is subversive, although I see alpha subverses
more often than the greek.
