[sword-devel] Versification and german bible texts

I know there has a lot of discussion about versification schemes.
Now that I'm working on a Sword module myself it seems I have missed  
and not understood the issues that are.

However I noticed a different versification when I compare the bible  
I'm working on GerNeUe and the other german bibles (GerSch,  
GetElb, ...).
For example Gen 31:55 doesn't exist in the GerNeUe source and actually  
also not in Schlachter and Elberfelder if I look at http://www.bibleserver.com 
But the Sword modules for Schlachter and Elberfelder have verse 55.
This leads to that all verses in Gen 32 are different to other sources  
(shifted by 1) until Gen 32:32 where verse 33 is put into verse 32 by  

I know this is because of the KJV versification schema that is used by  
Can I use the dynamic versification schema of the upcoming version  
What are your suggestions?
