#741: Small enhancements and bug fixes for v.out.ogr

     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new                      
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  6.4.1                    
Component:  Vector       |     Version:  svn-develbranch6

 Some timid enhancements and bug fixes to v.out.ogr:

 * added -u ("update") flag for writing layers to existing OGR datasources
 * added -s ("skip cat") flag for dropping GRASS cat column from output
 * made sure that OGR features are properly created and destroyed
   each time through the main export loop
 * fixed two nasty mem leaks in the attribute field generation code

 Please test extensively with your data to see if this patch can be applied
 to 6.4.x or even 6.4.svn. It is critical mostly for getting v.out.ogr to
 work with SQLite databases.

 I will do all major updates to this module (faster attribute table export,
 support for kernels and volumes) in the 6.5 and 7 branches only.
