 `rast3d` which needs to be renamed to `volume`.

 all "voxel" and

 I was discussing that with MarkusN and MarkusM and we didn't find a better
 solution. Element 'volume' has big advantage: shorten 'rast' will still
 work. Moreover 'rast3d' was somehow weird, "Volume" is used in the GUI

 > "volumne" (and others) by "3D raster" so far. The only three places I
 know about where

 "Voxel" is an element of the 3D grid. I would stay in the manual with "3D
 raster map" or "volume map".

 > I'm personally against "volume" because this term means too much other
 things. (Does volume computations refer to 3D raster/voxels/voxel models
 or to cubic meters of soil or water?) It

 Feel free to suggest better solution. We don't want to use shorten element
 names, we would prefer that shorten names will still work (`g.list rast`).

 > If we are be replacing "3D raster", we should do it everywhere including
 manual and module family name
 ([http://grass.osgeo.org/grass71/manuals/raster3D.html Manual: Raster3D

 No, I would stay with "3D raster map" or "volume map". We just changed
 element list name, nothing else.
