Actually, it is sort of the other way around. BibleCS (The SWORD Project 
for Windows) is likely to have both the most extensive OSIS support and 
the most users. (I'm more certain of the former claim than the latter. 
My basis for the latter is simply the number of support requests we get, 
which could very well be due to other factors, like the level of 
expertise of the users.)

If BibleCS doesn't support a feature of OSIS, then it is likely that 
none of the frontends do (in part because if BibleCS's render filters 
are part of the Sword library itself, so updating them is part of the 
process of updating Sword itself).
