Comment (by hamish):

 (working with Colin's native WinGrass installer r39271)

 %PATHEXT% is used to indicate that .py files are executable and usable
 without their extension. But this only seems to work from the DOS box
 version of WinGrass, not from the MSys xterm (no big surprise there).

 Running a python script from the DOS prompt it fails though because it
 doesn't know what program to associate .PY with.

 what is apparently missing is:
 set .py="%GISBASE%/extrabin\python.exe"

 but setting that in the DOS box doesn't associate it properly.

 (aside: strangely `dir "%GISBASE%/extrabin\python.exe"` succeeds while
 `dir "%GISBASE%/extrabin/python.exe"` fails at the DOS prompt)

 some random google hit shows it might need assoc + ftype as well, so I add
 this all together in C:\GRASS-6-SVN\grass64.bat just after the "set

 set .py="%GRASSDIR%\extrabin\python.exe"
 assoc .py=Python.File
 ftype Python.File="%GRASSDIR%\extrabin\python.exe" "%1" "%*"
 assoc .pyw=Python.NoConFile
 ftype Python.NoConFile="%GRASSDIR%\extrabin\pythonw.exe" "%1" "%*"

 and then "cd C:\GRASS-6-SVN\etc\gui\scripts" and v.type_wrapper<enter>
 finally launches python, but gives a "unknown option -e" error and shows
 the python.exe usage text.

 should {{{ set PYTHONPATH="%GRASSDIR%\etc\python" }}} be set in
 C:\GRASS-6-SVN\grass64.bat as well?
