I think this is rather a "feature". osis2mod is trimming "extraneous"  
whitespace. I think this was to handle input that is pretty. I'm in  
favor of retaining all whitespace. My opinion is that an osis  
document should be what is actually wanted. I've got some changes I  
need to make because of the NASB (osis2mod is not handling stuff  
between verses well). I can change this too if it is what people want.
