i.points lets a user interactively set ground control points (GCPs)  
for an unrectified image, using a rectified image. This particular  
process cannot be automated since it is interactive by definition.

However, if you already know the ground coordinates of a set of xy  
points for an image, you can build a POINTS file and i.rectify will  
georectify the image from the command line.
