[GRASS-dev] r.flow and reference information

while rewriting some modules, so that they use G_message and G_warning
    instead of fprinf, i found, that r.flow prints reference information
    to standard error.

i think, this option (-h) should be removed, because of this information
can be found in the manual page (or should be).

so i suggets

+      G_warning(_("For reference information see manual page. This option will be removed"));

-      fprintf(stderr, "\n");
-      fprintf(stderr, "Version: GRASS5.0, update: October 1999\n");
-      fprintf(stderr, "\n");
-      fprintf(stderr, "Authors: original program: J. Hofierka, M.
-Zlocha, H. Mitasova, L. Mitas\n");
-      fprintf(stderr, "    new GRASS implementation: J. Caplan, M.
-      fprintf(stderr, "\n");
-      fprintf(stderr, "Methods used in this program are described in the
