I think it was. What now - do I revert the messages to their worse form
for the sake of translations?
If so, this technicaly means all messages are frozen once translated to
any language. How do GRASS devs find it? How do we deal with typos,
better wording etc. then?
Getting back to v.db.renamecol - what about this message (r30131 vs r30445):
< if [ "$col" = "cat" ] ; then
< g.message -e "Cannot rename <$col> column as it is needed to keep

At least the $col var must be replaced with $oldcol, due to a bug fix.
What do I do?
