More on structure

The structure map has refined itself a bit [update - much more]. The beginning and ending clusters have each lost a member - making their pillars just a bit smaller. 6 and 143 are traditionally part of the 7 penitential psalms (7, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, and 143). This aspect of form in the psalter has been known for so long that I can hardly ignore it.

I have also added the traditional overlaps. So there are 7 columns Torah, Royal, Acrostics, Penitential, Maskilim, and Miktamim. The overlap between categories is shown by various colour connectors.

I see I have a few psalms that are not in a column - next version will deal with that...
