#3924: Port r.in.lidar to PDAL

 Priority:  normal                   |  Milestone:  7.8.1
Component:  Raster                   |    Version:  svn-trunk

 As libLAS is more/less EOL, we need a PDAL based replacement. At the
 moment there is an extension r.in.pdal, but 1) it is extension and not a
 core module 2) it uses PDAL CLI instead of working directly with API 3) it
 is not feature complete replacement of r.in.lidar.

 IMHO we could try to IFDEF libLAS/PDAL code in r.in.lidar and make
 PDAL/LibLAS exclusive options in configure. Thus transition from libLAS to
 PDAL would be seamless for ordinary r.in.lidar users.

 I would love to see any progress on it as I got hit by an old issue
 returning on Ubuntu Disco with libLAS C API code resulting in a segfault
 and thus far I haven't been able to figure out how to work around it.
