Regarding MODTOOLS-31, this should be three separate bug reports. Bug reports that are too broad are seldom seen as anything more than an observation. No one person would ever be the owner of this one report.  I'm inclined to suggest that we close it as "invalid" or "won't fix" and state why.

Regarding mod2osis, this is ATM orphanware. This is the least of the problems with mod2osis.

Regarding diatheke, as others have noted, this is deprecated but reasonably useful. It is not clear what the importance of fixing this is compared to other work.

Regarding mod2imp, the real question is what is the proper way to specify a linked verse that imp2mod can accept. Since we don't accept module input from the output of imp2mod, it is not that important to fix.

Regarding linked verses, this is common in commentaries, but until recently was very rare in Bibles. It is still rare in Bibles. If it were in widely used Bibles and these tools were widely used, then fixing any of these might be more urgent.

In Him,
