[sword-devel] German Elberfelder 1871 Bible module isn't authentic

I have renamed the module to reflect that it is the text that is called 
(by everyone on the internet) the 1871 Elberfelder. If you can identify 
the text, we would be happy to update the name to be more accurate (but 
not to be more vague, as you propose).

What is hopefully conveyed is that this text matches all of the other 
1871 Elberfelders found on the internet, even though we know that this 
does not match printed 1871 Elberfelders.

I don't have any further information on the text other than that Joachim 
Ansorg apparently procured & produced it.
