Of course there are technical difficulties if we seek to copy the printed
text exactly - but this should not delay a mapping mechanism.
A mapping mechanism is, I believe, more important than trying to support
more complicated v11n's with reordering, inserted text, etc.
(I'm not saying that I don't want to see more complicated v11n's - but I
think they are a lower priority)

Mapping in the general case should be actually pretty easy mostly - provided
you have the data...

God Bless,
Multitudes, multitudes,
   in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
   in the valley of decision.
