But I don't see any gain in usability from the GUI. We could set
GRASS_UI_TERM=1 and then run r.reclass in a terminal window. But this still
needs a script of some kind to launch (at least for...saving the current
value of GRASS_UI_TERM, setting it to 1, running r.reclass, resetting
GRASS_UI_TERM back to whatever it was originally). Then it requires the user
to type in file names from memory at an xterm prompt.

Currently, we use a script and take advantage of the GRASS parser to allow
the user to browse for an existing file and type a new file name into a
completely editable entry widget.

I'm not saying that some people might not prefer to use the command this way
from the GRASS prompt. And it is nice that this option exists. It's just
that it doesn't make it any easier to run r.reclass within the GUI.
