 This would change the current default behaviour with min_slope = 0 and
 aspect = 0 if slope = 0. Direction = 0 has an equivalent meaning in
 r.cost, r.walk, r.drain, r.path, r.watershed, r.stream.extract: it is a
 valid cell, there is no way away from here, stop routing here.

 Also, -1 can be interpreted as 359, just like 0 can be interpreted as 360,
 no improvement there. IMHO, the corresponding aspect value for zero slope
 must be clearly documented, then it can be easily changed if need be.
