Bug Description

the OOPS system is invaluable for telling us about crasher bugs in the system, but we have no such mechanism in place for our client side javascript - we have to wait for user reports

One way to solve this would be to have a special url that a client side error handler can GET from which causes an OOPS to be created. This could be (in principle) used to dos us, but if we allow it to be turned off server side, we can deal with malicious data injection in a crude way.

to be most useful we would want these turning up in our regular oops reporting system.
