Peter created a parallel script called xreffix.pl which sits alongside
usfm2osis.pl and is intended to be run on the output of usfm2osis.pl.
Using it requires the SWORD Perl bindings be installed and a locale
that understands the source language.  It should understand anything
that SWORD and the locale understand - if that includes Devanagari
