This looks good (although the screen doesn't give much info about how it works...). However, there are a few things that I think should be addresses in d.dm (especially if it is going to stay for 5.0 and 'gratia' will 
only be for 5.1):

- d.area is being replaced by d.vect.area (or whatever we decide for the d.vect.* modules), so the script needs to be adapted to that

- I have a problem with the RGB color palette: when trying to create a customized color, it is displayed as 'grey'.

- Would it be possible to write any messages from d.dm (and the modules it calls) into a tk-window instead of the main Grass terminal ? That way one could already use this terminal while waiting for the 
commands to finish.
