This is already there. The real signature of the method is:
virtual ListKey ParseVerseList (const char *buf, const char *defaultKey
"Genesis 1:1", bool expandRange = false);
this will work with code like:
VerseKey vkey = "James 1:19";
ListKey lkey = vkey.ParseVerseList("20-22; 2:17", vkey, true);
this will return:
(expandRange true, above, is the difference between James 1:20-22, and
PS. Your "v.12" example, I believe, is problematic due to our roman
numeral parsing. Not sure; it may work, but I don't think so right
now. My guess is you'll get something like 5:12 (v = 5).
