	I personally think this is a good idea.  Once we have the general 
books, placing that data into a Bible, once the library supports these 
books, will be trivial and systematic.

	The library current uses a hardcoded static 'canon' of verses (defined 
in canon.h).  To make the CORRECT changes to make the library to support 
these extra-Biblical works in the 'Bible' drivers is not a 'simple fix'.
