i allready went through some modules and appart of rewriting the code, i
also removed -q/-v flags, because it was imho not necessary.

i was only working in grass6 source, nothing was backported to 6.2

does it mean, that it would be good to revert this changes - or at least
add -v/-q flags back to modules?
