Quick note about the OSMHB modules.... As with a few other modules, I 
released two versions simultaneously. There's a version 1.0 that uses 
the KJV v11n, in the public repo. And then there's a 2.0 in the 
experimental repo that uses the native Leningrad v11n. The latter is 
more ideal and is what Daniel is referring to above as a real-world 
example of av11n for developers to use.
