[sword-devel] Calvin's commentary

The problem with Calvin's Commentaries is that they do not fit into the 
book/chapter/verse paradigm we use in Sword. In order to do them 
correctly, they would have to be done as a GenBook module with BCV-type 
indexes into the GenBook. I think the work on alternate versification 
support could potentially be used for this, since it relies on putting 
using GenBook modules to store Bibles.

But if it is the same Calvin's Commentary module I saw a while ago, it's 
already been rejected because it doesn't represent the source text 
accurately. I'll take a look at it, but the chances that it is something 
we are interested in publishing are almost 0.
