This tool provide a support for GRASS GIS as a utility installed with GRASS
I planned to develop in python for portability and send mail from python to
grass-dev list is not a big problem.
A broken python installation is a serious issue. For that we need further
discussion. But that this can report errors from the grass if there is no
failures in python installation. For windows we don't need msys if we deal
with python.

Apart from sending mail to grass-dev or grass-user, this creates a report
which will help to find the correct error in the modules, not the error
program or such thing. It can find which module is broken, grass version, if
the problem is due to older version of support library. etc..
