With MODTOOLS-42 now closed, there aren't really any 'unfixed issues' in 
usfm2osis.py. There are some feature requests in the bug tracker and a 
minor bug that may not be reproducible.

At this point, usfm2osis.py is significantly more capable and likely to 
produce valid output than usfm2osis.pl. The Perl script is fairly 
unmaintainable and I don't expect anyone will put for the effort to 
maintain it at all.

And remember that a bug report would need to describe a reproducible 
bug. I can't do anything with what appeared in the initial description.
