because for 6.4 there is a choice of text,d.m,gis.m, and wxPython.
I added a wrapper script instead of just opening a GUI for g.gui to
enforce that the -u and -n flags are used and make it a bit more obvious.
I initially added some text about "will take effect next time you start
grass" but removed it after I noticed that module popup guis use the new
gui immediately. so maybe say "will take *full* effect next time..." or so.
Running it from the wxPython GUI still needs to be tested by someone please. Config -> Working enviro -> Change default GUI
Also, I was thinking it could be useful to add an entry after 'Help->About system' like 'Help->Show system environment' which would run "set" and dump the results to the Output window. It would help in debugging.
prob add a sep line in the help menu for that and 'About System'.
