This requires changes in v.delauny. Somehow the z coordinate must
be maintained (currently set to 0).

For those (like me) who want to easily generate 3D points,
I have extended r.random to optionally use the extracted
attribute value (m) as z coordinate:

Instead of
 x y m
it now optionally writes
 x y z m
with z=m.
