 Replying to [comment:1 martinl]:
 > Please try r39669 (devbr6). Not sure if to backported it into relbr64
 (it's not bugfix). Probably in GRASS 6.4 we can just set {{{-o}}} as
 default also for {{{v.in.ogr}}}.

 Just for clarification, the -o flag means "Override dataset projection
 (use location's projection)", same like in r.in.gdal. Thus your suggestion
 to set -o as default means override dataset projection by default?

 The new wxGUI dialog is not consistent with regard to OGR layers and OGR
 datasources, for e.g. *.gpx and *.kml files, datasources are listed as
 layers, although these datasources hold layers themselves. With so many
 different supported OGR formats, I would strongly opt to at least stick to
 the terminology used by OGR in regard to what is a datasource and what is
 a layer to avoid user confusion.
