Even if we got permission (which would be great), there is still the
question of how to encode it. As I noted in a previous email (on companion
modules), we would currently need at least 5 modules if we weren't
duplicating data throughout. And that wouldn't be nice for the user.

It would be nice to have a module type which allows multiple entries per key
- with ranges (i.e. an entry for Matthew 1, one for Matthew 1:1-17, one for
Matthew 1:2-6, and one for Matthew 1:3. Currently, if using 1 module, the
entry for Matthew 1 would need to be duplicated in lots of places - as
linked verses can't link part of the content.

These concerns apply in part to many study bibles, I think, so it is worth
thinking about.

God Bless,
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
Philippians 4:23 (ESV)
