 it is the default region when creating new mapsets. thus it is the fall-
 back region setting. (if we really want to get into it, native French
 speakers can expand on the root of the word; but see closing comments

 -> where in the code or docs do you find it to be confusing? The
 description for 'g.region -d' could certainly be improved to explain this
 better, tooltips added etc if you like.

 I don't think this is important enough to change the DEFAULT_WIND file
 name, or to break consistency when referencing that file. The WINDow half
 of the filename has already been abandoned as far as the user interface is

 as with #323, I think most semantic debates are best dealt with by honing
 the documentation and being consistent in the descriptions.
