 The Data tab shows only the current GRASS (GIS) database (directory). Some
 users have two or more of these "grassdata" directories, so moving data
 between then should be possible. For example, r.proj already allows that
 (`dbase` option).

 The additional databases/directories could be added manually to cover all
 the cases, but perhaps just putting there n recent ones would suffice to
 most users.

 To avoid some long loading times, maybe only the current
 database/directory tree should be loaded and the other(s) should be loaded
 on demand, e.g., with context menu (this may lead to unexpected
 situations, e.g., with search).

 Also useful if the Data tab/data catalog functionality is reused for the
 startup window.

 Depends on:
  *  #572 Remember recent GIS Data Directory
