I think it makes sense to support multiple personal commentaries.  I'm
not so convinced it makes sense to have a different commentary for
each different versification.  What (I think) would be expected (and
certainly would be expected by me) is to have a collection of notes on
verses, and have those notes displayed for that verse in the
versification of the current module.  Some notes might be on a verse
only present in one versification.  Others would be visible from just
about all versifications (though quite possibly with a different
chapter and verse in the different versifications).  Having a comment
on multiple verses (as is done by many comments and probably a
reasonable expectation for making my own comments) becomes a little
more tricky to decide what to display and where to display it, but I
really can't see any advantage in having notes that can only be viewed
in a certain versification, nor in having to remember when I'm using
Bible X to have my module open for notes in Bible X's versification
rather than my other notes commentary.
