I'd like to do that, but all the students in the class using GRASS are 
using it on Windows/Cygwin.

GRASS 5.7 has only just now become available for Windows testing. I am 
hoping that it works well, but haven't had anyone brave enough to test 
it yet (They are still getting used to the software in general). I am 
hopeful that this will be the solution in the future. Still, I assume 
that GRASS 5.3 will become the final, GRASS 5 standard soon. I don't 
know how difficult it is to fix v.cutter. If it is not a big chore, it 
would be nice to remove the bug before 5.3 becomes 5.4 and finalized.

On the subject of GRASS 5.7, I noticed previously that a lot of raster 
commands seem missing (especially I/O, r.support, and modeling). Is 
this simply because they have not yet been updated? Will most raster 
commands work in 5.7 or do they all need tweaking?
