Hi Eric and Justin,

general I agree that me might simplify the bin/ section. However, there are 
54 inter/ subdirectories which need to be merged (or whatever).
So we need to have front.end fixed until we have an idea how we can do this
merge without many hours of extra work as GRASS/CVS is broken at time.
