[GRASS-user] DB copy for v.db.connect

it is advised to copy DB before running v.db.connect to a second map, as
if you delete the second map the DB will be removed for the parent map
too.  db.copy seems the obvious way to do that, but db.* only work if the
source map (ie table) is in the same mapset as the new map.  How to copy
a DB from another mapset to the current one cleanly? Like 'g.copy vect='
does, but only the DB table.

e.g. attach table from roads at PERMANENT to new map in current mapset.
