Thats indeed the best solution. Lets use this idea as design decision.
I think r.univar is a good example. Extended stats are computed only
when specified, because of its additional computation effort and
memory usage. The output is added automatically to shell style output
in case "-g" is specified.
* g.region is ok
* r.info, v..info and r3.info can be reduced to use only the "-g" flag
to print all info in shell style
* ... ?
