Re: Declining ThML support?
I think we have a number more books currently available in OSIS format than 3.

Taking the mods.d.tar.gz off Crosswire's ftp and running the little pipeline over its contents (mentioned at bottom of initial post here), in English I find 24 GBF, 42 ThML, and 2 OSIS. The OSIS entires are the Good Samaritan essays and KJV. Beyond that, I know of ESV being in late beta, and I suppose that both the in-progress NET and NASB modules are OSIS (though I wouldn't know personally, not having seen them). There are a few non-English OSIS, of course. But even there, to date GBF+ThML swamps OSIS -- overall, 54 GBF, 168 ThML, and just 13 OSIS -- only about 5% of the total. The dominance of ThML in those counts is why I chose ThML, before I knew enough to have learned of the new OSIS intent.

If that's truly the direction, fine, I'll be retargeting my scripts. Movement to OSIS just appears not to be moving very fast.
