Just off the top of my head (i.e. I'm not looking at code and haven't 
looked at it in years)...
In mod2imp, it's fairly easy to eliminate the repeated verses (just ++ 
the SWModule, IIRC), but less easy to actually output verse range 

If you ++ the SWModule, you'll get the next verse in the module, but (as 
mod2imp is currently written) it'll just print the verse number for the 
first verse. By the time you might figure out that you were in a linked 
verse, you've moved on to the next distinct verse.

If you delay printing the verse reference & text until you have already 
advanced to the next verse, you don't necessarily know that verses 
weren't skipped (empty). So if Gen.1.1-Gen.1.2 were text, Gen.1.3 were 
void, and Gen.1.4 were text, I believe a ++ from Gen.1.1 would skip to 
Gen.1.4, and it's not clear how to identify that Gen.1.3 was empty 
without string comparing the verse texts.

Similarly, if Gen.1.1-Gen.1.3, Gen.1.5 were a linked verse, when you ++ 
from Gen.1.1, you'll go to Gen.1.4. From there, you'd probably go to 
Gen.1.6, and it's not clear to me how you'd capture that Gen.1.5 is 
supposed to be linked to Gen.1.1 via the API.

Do any real front ends print verse range information for users?
