 r.contours makes nice contours, but when you plot them in ps.map the
 labels aren't as nice as in GMT.  One of the most useful controls in GMT
 is one that lets you decide the spacing of the lables.

 It would be nice if either r.contour could be adjusted to include an
 option that specified where on the vector lines that it creates the labels
 should be placed, or if v.label could be adjusted to have a "contour" flag
 that puts extra labels at a given spacing along vector lines.
