 Replying to [comment:3 hellik]:

 > just a very quick but not complete look for references to a (bundled)
 python here on my winvista-box regarding the windows side of python-life:
 C:\Program Files\Inkscape\python\
 C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3.4\Basis\program\python-core-2.6.1
 C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\Basis\program\python-core-2.6.1

 The situation for a monolithic GUI application isn't comparable. These
 programs "embed" a Python interpreter in order to provide scripting
 capabilities within the application, in the same way that a web browser
 embeds a !JavaScript interpreter.

 GRASS' Python scripts are meant to fulfil the same role as Unix shell
 scripts or Windows batch files, but portably (and without the ANSI/OEM-
 codepage nonsense that batch files have).
