[GRASS-dev] r3.in.ascii suggestion

Hi, a short wishlist for r3.in.ascii:

I suggest changing r3.in.ascii's nv= parameter to default to '*' instead
of the word 'none', as is done in r.in.ascii.

also, type= should be changed from "default,float,double" to
"default,integer,float,double" or "default,CELL,FCELL,DCELL"?
(or 3D DCELL map type equivalents)

Why is "precision=" there at all? Is the module adapted from r.out.ascii
or something?

could the "data source" metadata line be set to the input filename?
(example in r.in.xyz)

The help page needs cleaning, and perhaps a little 3x3x3 example.

A r3.univar module would be nice too.
