I didn't follow the whole thread.

I don't think diatheke supports that.
If you use Linux check for existing versions using
find / -iname "*kjv*"

I get this for the last verse of the NT (using mod2imp):
$$$Revelation of John 22:21

It seems to me the strongs are available, although I'm not an expert with that 
stuff :)

Are you use the mods is not in /home/you user/.sword/ or /usr/share/sword ?
(if you use linux)
