If you can make the text file but have difficulty making that into a module 
I'm willing to write a little routine to convert.  vpl2mod MUST follow the 
KJV versification exactly else it will fall over - that can be a problem.  
I've always written little C routines, but others use a Perl script to run 
addvs on one verse at a time.  If you do Perl, that might be easy for you.

God bless,
