[sword-devel] Personal commentary -- internal scripture xrefs

The personal commentary driver is not handled differently than any other 
module type.  In personal.conf, if you have SourceType=OSIS then the 
engine will recognize <reference> tags.  If SourceType=ThML then 
<scripRef>.  Hope this makes sense (and is correct).
