Not really my job, this is a function already built-in to
ZWiki. All that is required is to set it up as per
instructions. (Ok, that did require just a little reading
between the lines. :)

Well I am not so sure about a shell script to pre-populate
a mail message. Maybe it would be ok for some linux users,
but the concept is not very portable. There is a wide
variety of mail clients out there and then there is Windows
too. I think it would be hard to write a script that works
for everyone. And there is a lot of variability in email
server programs as well plus email security/anti-spam
issues to worry about.

How about a script to pre-populating a web form? The action
of the web form could be to submit a report directly to
IssueTracker. I hope that wouldn't be viewed as too much of
an assumption by users who normally use only email.

That reminds me to ask: What is the origin of the message

   protected-symbol-warn called with (NIL)

that appears on every error output from Axiom? This looks
like some kind of lisp error to me. Is this supposed to be
