[B-Greek] Strongs Numbers (was "Inaccurate electronic versions")

I would be interested in what system you are going to use. I was going to
use a system that was backwards compatible with Strongs. Thus, the current
Strongs numbers would be used. And then a "1" digit would be added to the
words where Strongs goofed up within his own system (thus 2312' would become
12312 and 2526' would become 12526). Then a "2" digit would be added for
words that aren't in Strongs, while still keeping the last 4 digits in
alphabetical order relative to Strongs. Thus, this keeps the current system
intact while allowing expansion and still fitting in 2-bytes. What do you
think of this? What did you come up with?
