[sword-devel] Alternate Versification for (Protestant) French Bibles?

The v11n of the Psalms in some French Bibles is not that simple! 

I explain as follows: where CT denotes Canonical Title.

In French Bibles, there are four categories of Psalms ...

    1. Without a CT
    2. With a CT, but normal text starts within verse 1
    3. With a CT, but normal text starts at verse 2
    4. With a CT, but normal text starts at verse 3

Those with a CT all have the CT starting at verse 1.

The difference in the total number of verses in each Psalm compared to the
KJV can be 0, 1 or 2.

The versification of some [pairs of] verses is also subtly different. e.g.
Psalm 13:6
