d.rast and d.vect haven't gone anywhere.

If you want to be able to control the GUI from the command line, that
should be dealt with as an infrastructure issue, not by creating
wrappers around individual commands.

I can deal with the display/driver libraries, and with generic Python
IPC, but some of it will need the involvement of someone who
understands the GUI.
