All the ‘spinors’ option does is set the number of electrons per state
to 1 rather than 2 (W90 UG 2.4.8).  I am not sure where exactly that
setting becomes relevant; in some of the postprocessing tools, I am
sure.  For the Wannier projection itself, the occupation is

Let me emphasize that ‘spinors’ is an option of Wannier90 (in the
‘.win’ file, as you said) and has no effect on wien2wannier itself.

We do not have ‘.spn’ files in Wien2k (yet), so spinor projections,
spin-projected band structure, an so on are out of reach for now.
However, I think it would not be too hard to construct it.  For the
record, this is a separate issue from the ‘spinors’ option.
