Component:  Default                        |     Version:  unspecified              
 Keywords:  location, description, ps.map  |    Platform:  Unspecified              
      Cpu:  Unspecified                    |  
 Besides _editing_ the PERMANENT/MYNAME file manually (later, not while
 creating a Location), is there a "proper" way to do so?  It is used for
 example by the "header" instruction in ps.map.

 I can't trace a single reference about it in any of the user-manuals
 except for in ps.map's section about the header instruction

 %L - Location's text description

 And, of course, in the Programmer's manual, i.e. in

 Maybe add an option to "g.proj" or an(other) environment variable
 "LOCATION_DESCRIPTION" to be set with "g.gisenv"?
