I'm excited about this!

I'm working on osis2mod at the moment to add -v flag to it. There is a  
bug I mentioned in another thread, but it seems to work  as long as  
all the verses are in the versification. You can grab it on the  
CrossWire server at ~dmsmith/swordsrc/sword/utilities/osis2mod.cpp. I  
think the other route is to use imp2vs, but it doesn't handle out of  
v11n verses at all.

When were were beta testing the German modules, many of them had the  
same KJV versification problems. I'd like to see a versification for  
that, if you don't already have one in the wings. If so, which is it?  
The input files are fairly easy to create, in so far as they are used  
by v11nsys.pl (i.e. the mapping part is not currently used). Peter or  
Manfred probably could pretty easily create one if it does not already  

In Him,
