I agree... Another idea is to take the opposite way : what are the
Grass functions _really_ used ?  As we are thinking about a 5.1 "stable"
version, it could be interesting to add only those ones...

AFAIK, there is no stats about grass functions usage. Since all
functions are run via a single launcher program (linked to all
function names), this one can be modified to create a stat log file
that can be further exploited (perl script) to send the stats to 
some repository site... that can also be a way to know how many peoples
are actually using Grass.

Does anybody have some idea of that number ?
