I am always torn on this issue. On the one hand, if GRASS had a
friendly user interface, maybe it wouldn't be in the GIS ghetto it is
now (in USA anyway). On the other hand, the reason I use GRASS is
because it integrates with my Unix toolbox (sed, grep, cut, etc).

If there comes a day when a Bash script isn't a first-class interface
to GRASS. Well, that's the day I stop using GRASS.
