Sorry, I'm not reading related code, but does not many current GRASS modules
relay on loading whole raster map into ram? Not all GRASS modules scale
IMLO better working version today than excellent version tomorrow. Talks about
replacing r.out.gdal script w C module I hear for long time, but no one does.
Now we have an option, why not use it?
