i don't have a complete module. i guess you already know the traceback and 
smtplib module. you could look at the cgitb module which creates fancy html 
tracebacks with the values of the variables at the time of the exception. 
you could redirect the outpput to a string and sendit using the smtplib 
module, after asking the user if he wants that.
