Maybe I'm being far too simplistic - but as an interim solution, if each
av11n table that is the equivalent to canon.h carried a set of xrefs to
the kjv canon.h, at least all canons could be xrefed to the kjv canon.
As the majority of modules conform to kjv currently, an xref output from
the engine that would allow these to be synced to a particular module
(with an error where the sync could not happen) would be a fair stopgap
wouldn't it? OK - it's a kludge, but I can't think of anything else
that frontends could adopt relatively easily while thought on the 'final
solution' is ongoing.
God bless, Barry Drake.
