I'll work on the Delitzsch NT. I've got a copy and have been meaning to
process it for a while.
Our current "HebModern" text is not the Delitzsch NT. Conceivably it's
some other edition, but its text differs considerably from the Delitzsch
NT I have. It also includes an OT translation, which Delitzsch didn't
do, so it should be pretty obvious that it isn't Delitzsch's.
