If I understand well, there is not such module, but it should be possible
to get such result with sequence of commands (say that we have 2 area maps
a and b with attached tables in postgres):

v.patch input=a,b output=c1
v.clean input=c1 output=c2 tool=break,rmdupl
v.category input=c2 output=c3 option=del
v.category input=c3 output=c4 type=area
echo "create table c4 (id int, a int, b int)" | db.execute
v.db.connect map=c4 driver=pg database=db key=id table=c4
v.to.db map=c4 option=cat col1=id
v.distance from=c4 to=a from_type=centroid to_type=area max=0 upload=cat column=a
v.distance from=c4 to=b from_type=centroid to_type=area max=0 upload=cat column=b
Create a view in postgres from a, b and c. 


To put it to one module, should not be a big problem (I mean regular module,
not script).
