As long as all text reads are done by using the indexes, vss, for each 
verse and not off of some custom index, all verses should read like before. 
I think it best for other indexes to index a verse by indexing the vss 
record for the verse.

I'm just trying to get my feet wet on this. So just my 2 cents for what it 
is worth.
