Wearing my shiny new SWORD module creator hat:

My rough draft (sans footnotes and titles) OSIS conversion of the 
Bisaya-Inunhan NT is valid OSIS 2.1.1 per xmllint.  However, I'm seeing 
some output from osis2mod that I need help interpreting.  Currently it says:

   You are running osis2mod: $Rev: 2325 $
   re-versified III John 1:15      as III John 1:13
   Appending entry: Jude:
   re-versified Revelation of John 12:18   as Revelation of John 12:16
   Appending entry: Rev.13:

(1) Enhancement request #1: I do not know if these are informational, 
warning, or error messages.  Prefixing them with INFO: WARN: or ERROR: 
would be really helpful in this regard.

(2) Enhancement request #2: osis2mod does not seem to exit with an exit 
code that reflects the worst issue found during the run -- I'm seeing an 
exit code of zero despite these messages.

(3) Enhancement request #3: If these messages could include a line 
number from the original OSIS input file, or a line or two of it at the 
point of the info/warning/error, that would really help.

NOTE: None of these are necessities for 1.6; just ideas for the future.

BOTTOM LINE: Is re-versifying these things "bad"?  Do I need to get 
osis2mod to run with no output before I can consider the module "clean"? 
  What is really going on here?  Is there a Wiki page or other 
documentation that explains these messages that I should have read?
