Comment (by martinl):

 From grass-dev ML by Michael Barton:

 I relooked at the discussion. I don't have particularly strong
 feelings one way or the other. But if you need a decision, I'd favor
 either *.gws (GRASS workspace) or *.gwsf (GRASS workspace file)

 I did a search on a couple of file extension sites. *.gwsf did not
 exist and *.gws was found on only one site. It was listed as a
 !GeoMedia (Intergraph) geoworkspace file format.

 Martin: yes, gws is already taken (1) moreover !GeoMedia -- too much
 related, 'gwsf' would be better.

 So I guess we'd be wise to steer clear of *.gws. But *.gwsf seems fine.

 Martin: I agree.

 Anyone have any objection to *.gwsf?

 Martin: not really, just like 3-letter extensions. But I haven't found
 something reasonable, some more ideas here?
