I understand you are more interested in the Bibledit route.  If it
works, that is good.  However, if it doesn't then the definitive Wiki
page on USFM is
http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/Converting_SFM_Bibles_to_OSIS.  It
recommends using SFMToOSIS, and from memory I've got better results
from it than from usfm2osis.
