I've updated BT to compile against SVN (if you pull the SVN of
Bibletime and apply the patch in the patches directory), but seeing as
I didn't have any modules which were built with either extra-canonical
or alternative versification, I've not been able to test if my changes
have led to supporting that or not.  Also, BT will only run against
SVN SWORD if Chris or Troy got around to committing the patches I gave
for locales (I haven't been able to check in the past week, with my
own semester ending).  So I'd definitely be interested in seeing your
work get into beta so that I could test Bibletime.  Otherwise, getting
at least the KJV portion into beta would probably be good so that you
can have testers check the content.
