Comment (by veroandreo):

 Hi, I'm happy to have background option in d.grid :)

 I did a quick test and I attach an example below. I noted that when
 choosing white background for grid labels, I loose part of the map in the
 east (See no-transparency in fig 1 vs transparency in fig 2). So,
 background of labels seems to be a continuous white strip for Y
 coordinate, while it's fine for X coordinate.

 On the other hand, grid lines overlap the white background of labels,
 while IMHO, label should always be in front.

 I personally don't like the border tickmarks of d.grid but when disabling
 them, labels remain aligned as if there were border tickmarks (last fig).
 Maybe they could be aligned more close to the border (if not against it)
 as in ps.map.

 And, would that be possible to also change font of labels?? :)
