I think it's a "new feature", but yeah.

If you have the ability, the quickest results will come by writing the 
code yourself and sending in a patch. Otherwise, you can request 
attention in the bugtracker: http://www.crosswire.org/bugs, which will 
at least ensure that the issue doesn't get forgotten.

The conversion to HTML is fairly straightforward:
<list>  -->  <ul>
<item>  -->  <li>

If you no one gets to it, I'll probably spend a while working on all of 
the OSIS & TEI filters after my semester is finished in ~2 weeks and 
assuming I can get GnomeSword to compile on Win32 against Sword SVN.
