That's how it works.

The move to multiple versification schemes seems to have a very low
priority these days. I believe it's essential to have them. We already
carry more than one incomplete version. The LXX and its translations
and the Vulgate simply don't have all the books. NET is working on the
Apocrypha and will need support for that in the next major release and
so on .... as Chris Little pointed out, the subject is fairly complex
as there are a number of differing versification schemes in common use!
Actually, versions with linked verses could be said to be an alternate
versification. Maybe there could be a better way to support them as a
part of alternate versification? It would need to have chapter, verse
and range as part of the infomation that is currently carried in canon.h
and fixed, and the api would need to return the linked block in respect
of any verse in the range, but that should be quite possible technically.
