This is not entirely accurate. If to use in the first mode-- no verse
ref prepended-- there must be EXACTLY the number of KJV verses of lines
per file, plus a few extra headers as described below:
OLD TESTAMENT HEADING
CHAPTER 1 HEADING
In the beginning....
If no heading info is available, at least a blank line must be present.
The above implies you understand that there must be a CHAPTER 2 HEADING,
EXODUS HEADING, NT HEADING, etc.
You can get exactly this by an export with mod2vpl.

I believe there should be a space between 'Gen 1:1' and 'In'

yeah, well, that's fixed :)

Not sure about the rest. I'll try to remember to look for these issues
next time I try the tool.
