My understanding was that you were asking about the versification 
mapping code going into 1.7.2 or 1.7.x specifically, like you were 
asking about the lexicon fix. If that wasn't your intent, there's no 
real issue.

Changes to function signatures won't preclude the inclusion of your 
patch in 1.8.0 or later.

No one is against mapping between versifications to allow lookup using 
alternate versification systems, so if it is possible to improve your 
solution so that it works on a per-translation level, I think that would 
be very helpful.

With that, most of the editions & translations we distribute that use 
non-KJV versification systems can be mapped to/from. And the remainder 
will be as un-supported as they currently are (which is better, in my 
view, than being "supported" with incompatible data).
