If installing any module causes the app to crash, that is a bug in the
app (or engine) plain and simple.

With all means av11n is supported. With some means it's not supported.

How is this different from #2?

Nothing supports this, as there is no such structure at present which
even provides this ability, at least that I'm aware of, and thus it is
a moot point.

So, we're down to the same answer as I gave earlier:
BibleTime, MacSword2/Eloquent and PocketSword support av11n.
Nothing else does, at least according to the wiki, which somehow
claims Xiphos does support it, which it does not.
