I like this idea.

The other day I had my son look at BibleDesktop/JSword for the first 
time and he was overwhelmed by the number of books that he could 
download. One of the things he wanted was a commentary on Romans or at 
least one that covered it. He could not find one.

If the conf had the scope of the work encoded as a list of verse ranges, 
then an installer could help the user find pertinent.
