It's all coming along very nicely, and I should be able to make an
announcement and post some example content using a non-KJV versification
"Real Soon Now".

If I recall correctly, there's something broken about verse linking at
the moment (possibly just an osis2mod bug) but we will definitely be
keeping it in SWText/SWCom-based content (which is almost all Bibles &
commentaries). I couldn't tell you which specific modules use linking,
but I would guess it might be used to some degree (often sporadically or
seldom) in about 10% of our library. It's really just a function of the
API as it is intended to be used. That is, while iterating through a
module with ++, you're really iterating through unique entries rather
than through sequential verse refs.
