Yes, and declined to use it, IIRC. We'd used their own canon.h file and 
they transitioned to our Synodal v11n instead.

Luther and German aren't parallel cases. The German v11n is that 
employed by a large number of German (and other northern European 
Lutheran) translations. Luther is a historical v11n for Luther's own 

Our Synodal v11n is based on the v11n used in most Russian Bibles and 
some Bibles published in & around the former Soviet Union. SynodalP was 
an amalgam v11n, created for people who want KJV book ordering and 
Synodal Bible verse numbering and also dislike the deuterocanonicals for 
doctrinal reasons. Thankfully, its disuse meant we could right a wrong 
and remove it from Sword forever.
