It's on the wiki addons page. It's just a shortcut & doesn't add
anything new so I never considered adding it to the main GRASS CVS.

it takes at=x,y (% of display frame) as an argument, so yes. If you want
something like this, probably just rewrite the same method in Python
with a system call to d.graph, rather than bother with calling it as a
shell script.

see also "d.where -f" (but that's current frame, not display window)
