 Replying to [comment:39 mlennert]:

 choice over the other, but I would also plead for unabbreviated keys
 (unless absolutely infeasible).

 right, this means to update `element_list`, see eg. inconsistency in

 g.findfile -l
 List of available elements:
   rast      (raster map(s))
   rast3d    (3D raster map(s))
   vect      (vector map(s))
   oldvect   (old (GRASS 5.0) vector map(s))
   asciivect (ASCII vector map(s))
   labels    (paint label file(s))
   region    (region definition(s))
   region3d  (3D region definition(s))
   group     (imagery group(s))

 g.findfile element=vector

 will not work...
