I was working on a new module anf run into trouble with your new module.
The module has titles so I think osis2mod put the title tag into each verse
followed by the verse tag.
My problem: That is nowhere supported atm.
If I want to implement this in BibleTime I need to know if the module includes
the <verse> tags in the text itself or if it's a module prepared in the old
I need this because BibleTime now has to care for two different ways to render
verses. Just adding the HTML code for the verse tag would result in a mess
because we'd get nested verses and the like.
Basically I think we shouldn't add a new way to store/render verses because
the new modules prepared this way do not work properly in all existing
frontends. There's even no windows version supporting this atm.
We have to agree on a way to render and drop the support for the other one
Otherwise Sword will get messed up with stuff which is nowhere documented but
still required. Developing a frontend which supports all modules and all
rendering types is an adventure :)
Don't get me wrong, I think the new way is better than the old one but we
shouldn't have one more way to have markup in the modules.

This makes it almost impossible to render bibles in a parallel view. We need
support in the API for alternate versification.
