Dear developers,

as we are currently starting to clean the code: Shall
we keep the src.related section?

src.related > more README 
Programs in this directory are NOT GRASS commands, but are public domain
capabilities that may be useful to those advanced GRASS sites.

  General Cartographic Transformation Package.  Product of USGS.
  (MIT modified for State Plane in north-west hemisphere projections.)

-> Limited to 0) Lat. Long.    1) UTM    2) State Plane

  Product of UW, Seattle and Central Washington University
  Relational Information Management system.  Freely distributable 
  dbms married to GRASS through the programs v.db.rim and s.db.rim.
-> who is using it?
-> Sidenote: Perhaps s.db.rim could become s.db.reclass (hi Radim!)

  Product of CERL, Purdue, and MIT.  Provides shell script writers
  with the ability to generate graphical user interfaces via X-windows.
  Requires X and Motif to compile.  
-> no need as XGRASS is deleted as well from standard trunk

Altogether around 5.3MB source code.

Please tell me, if I can remove it (it keeps available using the
beta7 tag).
