#2483: adding output to groups

     Type:  defect          |      Status:  new                      
 Priority:  normal          |   Milestone:  7.1.0                    
Component:  Imagery         |     Version:  svn-trunk                
 Keywords:  i.maxlik group  |    Platform:  Unspecified              
      Cpu:  Unspecified     |  
 i.maxlik adds its output to the input group. This is an interesting
 feature as it then allows to treat this output together with the input
 (export the group, reproject, etc). Since it does not add the map to the
 subgroup, this does not perturb future use of the group with i.maxlik and

 However, other modules, most notably i.segment, do not ask for a subgroup,
 but only a group. And if the user does not pay attention, the output of
 i.maxlik is then included into the analysis.

 I see two possible solutions:

  * impose the use of subgroups in all modules where this is relevant
  * make the inclusion of the output an option in i.maxlik with the default
 being not to include
