 I am not so sure about these changes. In 6.4.0RC6 I can do

 GRASS 6.4.0RC6 (nc_spm_08):~ > r.mapcalc
 Enter expressions, "end" when done.
 mapcalc> test = 1.1
 mapcalc> test2 = 2.1
 mapcalc> end

 GRASS 6.4.0RC6 (nc_spm_08):~ >

 This is now no longer possible in grass7. In grass6 there is
 r.mapcalculator which pops up a GUI dialog and is a wrapper for r.mapcalc.
 r.mapcalculator is present in grass7, but as bash script, apparently it
 awaits translation to python? I personally would rather like to have
 r.mapcalc in trunk as in r42182 and use r.mapcalculator to provide a GUI
 interface like is done now for the modified r.mapcalc, another one than
 the fancy Map calculator? All the recent changes are done only to get a
 hit when searching the module in the wxGUI? IMHO, functionality has been
 removed, not added.

 Reopening the ticket for discussion.
