 > In the case where you're interested in the distance= map (rather than
 the value= map), distance inside is just as meaningful as distance
 > An r.shrink.distance module would be structurally similar (i.e. a near
 clone), so it makes sense to try to keep them in the same module.
 > The easiest change would be to have an "invert" flag which caused the
 distance= map to contain the distance from the nearest null cell
 (currently, it's the distance from the nearest non-null cell, so the non-
 null cells themselves have a distance of 0).

 Attached is a minimally invasive patch to add a new flag to
 r.grow.distance, calculating the distance to the nearest null cell.
