I would really avoid it, GRASS 7 should be focused on other things
than changing all messages which have been changed in the last decade
back;-) Look at changesets with log ~ "Message standardization" from
the last few months, now it is too late to change this rule. I can
repeat that I would prefer to put '.' at the end of each (even single
sentence) message, but it would be really waste of energy to change
all messages back. Carlos?
