How can we improve the API?

Allow for full bible downloads

Allow the developer to download the full bible json/xml by version key instead of by chapter. I think this would make it nicer for offline support of applications.

        ^this.

        As of right now, one can make caches of data gathered. Normally, I try to download entire chapters and ''main xml files'' (like the books.xml file that comes with each language), but getting specific verses out of one chapter I can handle myself. Therefore, just having a whole set of xml files is a far better alternative than always going online - it's faster, better for the bible.org server etc. Of course, the copyrights would still apply, so they would not have to be broken.
