Comment (by wenzeslaus):

 Replying to [ticket:3474 hellik] (OP):
 > therefore to broaden the user community, the startup should be changed
 > - start first layer manager and map display into a default ll-

 Done in PR:705 and PR:868.

 > - then offer the dialogue choose location/mapset-new location/mapset

 Even better, the Data tab is now capable to do anything the startup screen
 did (e.g., PR:756, PR:731 from the recent changes).

 > - introduce a -vintage flag to be able to change to the old behaviour

 Sorry, not happening. If you are running from the command line (and you
 [would] have to use any vintage sort of flag), you can set the mapset from
 command line. If you want pick it in GUI, start in some mapset, e.g., in
 the demolocation or create an XY location for yourself. There is besides
 the default g.gui, there is also g.gui.datacatalog if you want a light
 weight experience.

 Behavior of `--gtext` is still undecided, so please do test and make
