The reason the .zip is so large is that you did not remove the
uncompressed content.  Once you had compressed it to the 6-file set
[on]t.cz[svz], you should have removed the original ot, ot.vss, nt, and
nt.vss.  The uncompressed content represents about three quarters of the
post-unzip total (43M -vs- 17M).

In a pseudo-related vein, I have a different Calvin's Commentaries
module, but I don't know from where I got it.  (It isn't one I
produced.)  File times suggest I've had it for about a year; the
preserved modification times tell me it was produced in 2003, and the
.conf SwordVersionDate says so as well.  Source type is ThML rather than
OSIS; it includes side-by-side English/Latin Bible text using <table>,
followed by commentary which is in verse groupings.  It was produced by
Dave Hall <dl5hall at netscape.net>.

If anyone's curious about it, I could make it available.  It explicitly
observes public domain status.
