[GRASSLIST:2268] Making better use of ~/.grassrc5

  I want to increast the default size of the graphic monitor using
MONITOR_WIDTH and MONITOR_HEIGHT. But, rather than setting them as global
environment variables in bash, I would like them to be active only when
GRASS is running.

  Can I put these variables in ~/.grassrc5 and have them read and applied
whenever I start GRASS? What about releasing them when GRASS is shut down?
Could that be done with a change to /usr/local/bin/grass5?
