 see 5.0 authors"

We should probably mix in a copy of AUTHORS_5.0 or something.

the TODO file:
- some are done but still in there

- GDAL is now not optional?
- copyright at end of file 2003

compiled on Debian/testing (Sarge) on i686:

builds ok
I ran 'make bindist' but didn't install with it.

'nviz elev=topo' works.
v.digit works.

Tcltkgrass: (looks really nice; some things need to be greyed out?)

[Import|Export] -> Vector -> Import/Export old GRASS vector format
v.convert is import only, are there plans to change that, or is
'v.out.ascii -o' the official way?

Export -> Raster -> GRASS ASCII:
as this does Surfer & Modflow formats as well, maybe just

Display -> Display Manager
maybe that should read "[Start|Launch] Display Manager"

Display -> NVIZ visualization tool
maybe that should real "[Start|Launch] NVIZ visualization"
(tool is redundant, or at least not the right word..)

Generic Menu items: is it possible to give the module name (eg d.mon) in
a hint box upon mouseover?

Help -> Authors?
Maybe a flag from g.version?

congrats to all on a really nice job ..
