Aside from the reason Troy gave, doing the KJV helps us replace the  
current KJV and provide the resultant text to others as a public domain 
text free of restrictions.

And the RSV is inappropriate for the project because it is copyrighted and 
we would have neither the right to add Strongs numbers nor distribute the 
result under its license.
