Perhaps the following has been considered and rejected ... too
simplistic or unworkable ...

My understanding of versification (v11n?) is that KJV has a specific
number of book (66). Each book has a known number of chapters (50 in
Genesis), and each of the 1300 or so chapters has a known number of
verses (Gen 1 has 31 verses).

This is all reflected in structures in canon.h, specifically a "bunch
of numbers" in sbook and vm.

Would it be possible to define alternative sbook's and vm's, and then
have information in a module's .conf file as to which sbook+vm

Seems like this approach might work for Bible texts, but I'm not
particularly familiar with how non-Biblical texts like commentaries
