So, the --verbose option definitely pops up a dos-looking window and prints
lots of GIMP related messages, but it doesn't seem to get error messages
from Python.  I just accidentally tested this with a syntax error in a
module of mine that my PyGIMP plugins import.  In linux I get this very
helpful message:

r...@am2|07:02 AM|09_02_09$ gimp
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/ryan/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/", line 1, in
    import os, rwkos, rwkmisc, re, time
  File "/home/ryan/git/krauss_misc/", line 9
    if not amiLinux()
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

(gimp:17913): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp: gimp_wire_read(): error

and I can fix that in 30 seconds or so (it is a stupid syntax error on my
part, missing the trailing colon).

But in windows, I see no message related to it at all.  The only indicator
of a problem is that none of my PyGIMP plugins show up in the menus at all
(none of them can register themselves because they all import this module).
No idea how long it would take me to find the exact line that caused the
problem if I didn't try it in Linux.

Is there an easy solution to this?  How do I get standard error messages
from Python to display in Windows XP?
