 Hi, I would assume that a common problem for users switching from G6 to G7
 will be a new vector topo format. When opening vector data in G7 which
 were created in G6 `d.vect` fails with

 WARNING: Old topology format version 5.0 is not supported by this
          release. Try to rebuild topology.

 It would be nice to have in wxGUI mechanism/dialog which would inform user
 about that and suggest updating topology format to G7 automatically. This
 tool would

  1. switch to map's mapset on background
  1. call `v.build` or `v.build.all`
  1. switch back to current mapset and re-render display
