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'.
