 Regarding GRASS 7:

 The "right" way is to require that a compatible version of Python is
 correctly installed on the system and to ensure that PATHEXT contains the
 ".PY" extension.

 This won't work with MSys, but failing to honour PATHEXT is MSys' bug, and
 not something we should be trying to work around. If anyone is that
 determined to use MSys, they are free to provide an MSys package for
 GRASS, distinct from the native Windows version.

 It isn't possible to avoid the requirement for a "system" Python
 installation without putting GRASS inside a "ghetto" where it will never
 be able to fully integrate with the rest of the system.

 Unfortunately, it isn't going to be feasible to avoid that for 6.x.
