I tried to explain that a result of the procedure proposed by Markus and Frank
can depend on question formulation and obviously such procedure
is not democratic.
I am strongly in favour of democratic procedures used in GRASS
The argument that other projects prefer less democratic procedures
is not valid for me.
The attitude 'to see whether it works for us' is wrong in my opinion
because certainly it will work, it simply cannot fail, but the results
can be deformed and some people can be discouraged.
Less democratic procedures always work better but overall
results are worse.
