An addition to the e-mail I just sent, it should have already arrived,
if not this will make sense after that e-mail arrives, for the other
books that my idea didn't cover for GenBooks, then use the module name
for the Book name, and then use a X:X(:X) like idea for the interface.

By the grace of God,
Dan Adams

Possibly soon.

I've got a couple of patches from people that I need to integrate, which

should fix some of the bugs in searching at least.  I'm not sure how 
GenBook support would work with Diatheke.  Can you suggest an interface?

I could require users to supply full treekeys like "/1Enoch/4/5" but
seems a bit un-user-friendly.  The other option might be to generate
kind of tree for the user, but that would be a great deal more work to 
implement in an HTML-friendly way.
