I already mentioned back on 17 Sep that Xiphos' very old (pre-me) code
which detects <!P> is there only to substitute &para; into the stream
afterward.  It's used exclusively for KJV (hardcoded), and I wondered
aloud then (and still now) whether this is something that properly
belongs in the filter to begin with, and to apply to KJV-related
modules, to which no one had any reaction.

Take <!P> out.  Optionally put &para; in, and make it specific to
KJV-ish modules.
