Here's a simple file I put together to generate bug reports.  Load the file and
evaluate the form (report-error).  It will create a file and then bring it into
fred for you to add a description of the situation.  Warning, don't try it on
infinite recursion errors unless you want to wait a _L_O_N_G_ time for
it to generate the file.

The long documentation string tells you what it does.

I'll eventually put it into the mcl repository if it doesn't get too many flames
from this distribution.
