In SWORD you should _never_ instantiate an instance of SWKey. You
should use the module's methods for fetching its particular instance
of the SWKey and set the value using the appropriate methods (or
assignment overload in C++).
Because each module might have a different versification scheme, the
default when you instantiate one is to follow the KJV's versification
but that can lead to improper results when assigned to a module that
does not use KJV.

If you publish what you have, I can work with you to integrate it into
the engine's swig bindings. I have been the "pumpkin holder" for them
for a while now as well as for the CMake system that is the main way
to build them at present.
