D.vect.thematic does not require any particular driver. It uses d.vect
(iterated over different theme values) to render the final map.

This is why it can work with either an xmonitor or a TclTk canvas (the
latter via the PNG driver and immediate rendering mode.)

D.vect.thematic should become a C-module like d.vect.chart. But since I
don't know C I simply wish.
