OK, sorry for wrong counting, there are 68 GRASS modules with `g` flag
(in trunk), from them 16 uses `g` flags for shell script style output.
Note that in most cases the modules which prints something to the
stdout uses `g` flag for shell script style output. So I hoped that my
question is clear, why should be r.info and v.info exceptions? I think
it would be good decision to reserve `g` flag for shell script output
in the case that modules serves such output. That could be clear rule
for user POV.
