[sword-devel] Verse mapping information

No, we don't have this information. There are very few translations for 
which this type of data would be accurate, and almost all of those 
simply use the KJV versification (or the NRSV/GNT versification). Almost 
all translations with non-KJV/NRSV versifications vary in slight and 
idiosyncratic ways.

We could likely create this data and reliably map between the KJV(A), 
NRSV(A), MT/Leningrad, and *maybe* the Luther versifications, because 
those are based on individual documents. Even those mappings would not 
necessarily be reliable for other translations that claim to use those
