 At time aliases defined in $HOME/.bashrc are not transferred into the
 GRASS GIS session (discussed in https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/170
 but not yet realised).

 It would be way easier to work from command line if $HOME/.bashrc aliases
 were carried over into the current session.

 As per variables.html, `$HOME/.grass7/bashrc` has to be written by the
 user which is unneeded extra work. Why this separate bashrc was invented
 at all, is unknown to me...

 Indeed, there has been some related discussion in Feb 2013:

 Perhaps we can solve this in 2019/2020 :)
