[sword-devel] Display of bookGroup titles?

I don't believe that osis2mod preserves these titles.  If it does,
then it would preserve them in Genesis 0:0 or maybe [ Testament 1
Heading ].  And only newer versions of osis2mod would use it.  By
default, most front ends do not usually display either of those
sections for Bibles unless the user explicitly requests them.

The only module which _might_ use that construct is KJV, as our most
extensive OSIS module.  Maybe the NASB does too, but that is not
public yet and I don't have one to look.
