[sword-devel] supported ranges for bibles/commentaries

How, precisely, do you think that would work?

Gen-Rev works fine for specifying the whole Bible. (But even for that, 
does it imply inclusion of deuterocanonicals or not?)

If you specify "Gen", do you mean every single verse of it? What if one 
verse is omitted? How is that to be identified?

Are introductions somehow to be noted? How will discontinuous segments 
be enumerated?

Why put this in the .conf file rather than reading it directly from the 
index? The index would be precise & complete, albeit slower.

Aside from details of implementation, not a bad idea. I had thought 
BibleTime already did something like this on-the-fly.
