 options. I thought that `G_OPT_BASENAME_OUTPUT` will have default key like
 'basename_output' or 'output_basename' (better for backward
 compatibility). Similarly `G_OPT_BASENAME_INPUT` 'input_basename'.

 use input or output regardless of type. So input can be raster for one
 module but vector or imagery group for another. Basename is just another
 item in the list of possible types/meanings.

 OK, done in r62966
