Actually, I'd rather go the other way, i.e. have separate user-visible
programs (i.e. r.support.*) for each category rather than forcing the
use of the r.support menu.

Supporting non-interactive use would be an added bonus (I've already
written r.region).

Rename them to r.support.* and put them in $(BIN).
