Barry - I remember some discussion on the BT mailing list a little while
back regarding linked verses.  There should be a way to work through it on
all of the front-ends.  I believe they did a string comparison to see if the
two returns were equal and if they were, then they did not include the
second version of the string.  As the move towards multiple versification
schemes this will probably become a more critical issue to support, would it
