[GRASS-dev] GV_VOLUME: does it exist?

Hi all,

could anybody enlighten me about the status of the GRASS 3D
geometry type "GV_VOLUME"? I assume this is meant to be
the equivalent of the 2D "GV_AREA", i.e. GV_KERNEL + GV_FACE(S)?
Is there some actual Vect library level support for processing
such geometries or does GV_VOLUME just exist as a symbol for
completeness' sake? So far I could not spot it in the "type="
option of any GRASS module.

Happy coding,
