Agreed. This module is extremely important to me. If I can't rectify
images, GRASS becomes somewhat unusable to me. Most of the imagery
commands are quite important to me.
I believe i.ortho.photo will require input from one method or another.
I don't see it working without interactive input, either. This is one
of the other reasons I brought up the subject of lib/vask again. I'm
honestly stumped as to how to resolve this without rewriting the module
as GRASS advances.
