+1, although it is a bit generic?
eg possible namespace collision with python-gnuradio. [apt-file search]
(that seems just to be a directory name, but ...)

+0 for the name. Sounds ok.
I suppose g.gui will be a script, and it should use the normal parser
unless there is some big reason not to. So --tcltk option would become
or whatever names you like, with the default set to ...
IIUC d.m and gis.m will be dropped for GRASS 7. I think it is ok to
mandate Python for GRASS 7 but we should keep it optional for GRASS 6.
.... So what language to write g.gui in?
Both /bin/sh + .bat versions depending on platform via Makefile magic?
Do it in C?
