creates "shade from the (terrain) relief". r.shade (former r.shadedmap, and
d.shade) allows to "put the shade on a colored/colorful raster" where both
shade and raster can be anything. Shade can be e.g. aspect, slope or shade
derived from the relief. I know this is probably clear but his was my
I didn't though about r.shade and r.relief names before you suggested them
and I'm not 100% satisfied with r.relief because it is in fact not relief
but shade from relief. However, I like the new names because they are
short, there is no problem with using or not using the dot between words
and they are distinct from each other.
