 In stable version 6.4, when working in a Long-Lat LOCATION, v.distance
 returns geodesic distance on a sphere in meters (in the cases of point to
 point, and point to line).

 In GRASS 7.0 this feature is lost, and distances are always returned in
 the LOCATION units (i.e. degrees in a Long-Lat LOCATION). Geodesic
 distance should be the preferred behavior.
