So we make little wrapper scripts like v.dissolve and v.centroids.
That's much better than dealing with code duplication.

but that shouldn't wrap 3 module commands together with temporary maps
etc to perform something as simple as the 2d+attr column -> 3d points
conversion. If as Maciek suggests v.transform could do the job then
it's not so bad. The v.transform name even sounds right for the job.
