Not gonna happen, I would expect.  Uniscribe is platform specific, while a 
platform agnostic solution like (someday) Graphite could be a possibility.

APOT wouldn't be a problem if you want to type in the text (or just fix 
versification for those that are online).  1Enoch & Jubilees we currently 
have, but the rest would take quite a lot of work.

Apocrypha should be handled with the Bibles and probably will get worked 
on this time around if we work on new features.

Good idea.  These are pretty easy to modify.  Maybe set up categories for
sections where the original language is Hebrew/Aramaic/Greek too.
