I think it's useful. Anyway I would keep it in addons at this stage of
development. The module should be installable via g.extension without
no problem.

Speaking about addons, we should focus on easy-way how to install
them. Beside that, there are still open issues on Windows, eg. calling
python script from python. Thanks to Glynn's revert [1,2] this problem
is still unsolved. This is the blocker. I wonder if it remains blocker
forever. It's easy to revert non-perfect solutions, but hard for most
of us to find a time for better fix - apparently including the person
who did this revert.

It would be also good to put AddOns manual pages online. Will take a
look at this issue.
