  I don't see how you went from having a customizable translation to one that 
can't be fixed. I would hope that you would have hundreds of very good 
orthodox (notice the small "o") scholars pouring over it to insure the 
quality (and thus to "tag" part of it like CVS code and turn it into a 
printed Bible).
