[sword-devel] Synodal versification & IBT modules?

IBT modules specify Versification=Synodal 

This is because they follow the Russian Synodal v11n.

This causes some front-end apps to display all the deuterocanonical books in
the book selector.
e.g. PocketSword.

However, none of the IBT modules include deuterocanonical books.
They are all at most restricted to the 66 protocanonical books.
AFAIK, that's part of IBT's mission & policy. 
btw. Some modules contain fewer, but only because these translations are as
yet not fully completed.

btw. Some front-ends can "grey-out" the menu choices for 'absent books', but
this feature is an added bonus.

I wonder therefore whether we should provide an av11n called *SynodalP*
which would be the protocanonical subset of the Synodal v11n.

This would make book selecting a better experience for [at least]
PocketSword readers of IBT modules.
