[sword-devel] osis2mod problems

I knew about the comment issue because I tried to comment out 
deuterocanonical material for a module I was working on, and the 
presence of such material caused problems, to say the least. It would be 
handy to be able to use comments, and it is part of the OSIS schema. I 
can see several cases in which it would be beneficial to have them, so 
yeah, it would be nice.
