[GRASS-dev] question about potential enhancements to dbms

I've been trying out your updates to the dbms module and fixing
little odds and end. This is a fantastic tool. The ability to
highlight vector features is really nice. I had a couple ideas for
enhancements but wanted to run them by you before doing anything,
since I don't want to mess up any plans you already have.
1) What about adding a "display selection" button? Currently, you
need to double click a record for it to highlight (AFAICT). This is
easy for a single record, but trickier for multiple selections. A
"display selection" button would make this easier. It could also make
it easy to display the results of an SQL selection.
2) How about an "extract to new vector" button? This would take the
current selection and run v.extract to create a new vector based on
your sql or interactive selection.
Finally, I have a question (actually a group of questions). I can
easily edit the first record in the browse list control, but can't
edit any other ones. Is this a setting? A bug? Is a button needed to
turn on editing? Could it be with double clicks if we have a display
Also, there is a bug in an editable list control that I've reported
and I'm wondering if you have it with Linux too. I can edit any field
that is showing completely in the window, without scrolling to the
right. If you have to scroll right to the field, and double click to
edit it, it will edit some field to the left instead of the field you
intended to edit. It shows up for me in the wxPython demo as well as
in the dbms table.
