Ahh ok - that helps a bit.
Yeah - generally speaking, JSON can become a very powerful tool when
referencing large data sets (i.e. bibles) - especially if you're willing to
simply use an enormous amount of memory and load an entire bible into a
single variable... and let's be honest, ever since Java and Firefox, using
large amounts of memory hasn't been an issue for developers.... ;-)
I think it would be a great test-case to build out our own online bible
reader (i.e. blueletterbible.org ) that used our modules and extended them
through PHP/JSON to the user. I mean, if we just build the API plenty of
other developers could carry it from there, yes? It seems to me that there
is definitely a need for this growing within the Christian development
