Not just too long, I like better because it sounds unix. A lot of
students I teach are novices to GRASS and UNIX. I think they learn faster
if things are more consistent. So how about g.rm, g.cp instead of
g.remove, g.copy, etc.? It would really be great if the horrible
``option=name1,name2'' command line arguments would replaced for
unix syntax.
