#2798: v.centerline fails with real data

Comment (by mlennert):

 v.centerline is meant for bundles of lines that have more of less the same
 trajectory and for which you want to define one "mean" line. As shown in
 the examples in the man page this could be two lines representing the
 riverbanks, or more lines representing the variance of trajectories along
 a more or less similar direction, such as lines of flight of airplanes
 above a specific area.

 I don't really know what the "centerline" should be in your case ?

 I added a few words to the man page to hopefully make this more explicit.
 If you think the module should do something else, than please go ahead and
 modify it. I'm leaving the ticket open for now, but at this stage, this is
 a "wontfix" or even a "worksforme" in my eyes.
