 Save the database/location/mapset in a workspace file. When workspace is
 loaded, it should switch it to the given database/location/mapset as with
 ''Settings > GRASS working environment > ...''

 Before the switch, it should check if the mapset dir exist and if it is a
 mapset. When that fails (data moved, using different computer, ...), offer
 user option to not change workspace (a "Cancel" button) or open the
 workspace without the change of mapset (the current behavior) or let user
 provide the right database/location/mapset.

 Additionally, upon loading, we could check if the layers in Layer Manager
 exist. (But that might be solved in some other way in GUI - this
 information is currently not conveniently accesible - only when adding a
 layer and rendering.
