 "Switch to" and "switch back" should be done by passing `env` parameter to
 the module calling function. In this way only the subprocess has the other
 mapset environment. There is even no "switch back" except from deleting
 the GRASS `rc` file which was passed to the subprocess. See e.g. r60376.

 This is also something which could be in data catalog. However, I agree
 that the point is to have it easily accessible when the problem occurs.
