The original order OT versification is available in the MT versification 
system (or, for that matter, the Vulg and LXX versification systems, 
depending on your definition of "original").

Someone with an interest in "Hebrew studies" is not likely to find 
Young's Literal Translation with KJV versification but a mangled book 
structure very useful or interesting.

There is no possibility that we would ever consider adding an OOYLT 
versification system to Sword. There's no value in sacrificing system 
memory for fringe theories based on numerology.
