You can't change projections "on the fly", but you can re-project data
from another location into the current location using r.proj, v.proj
and s.proj (for raster, vector and site maps respectively).

GRASS contains code to prevent a user from having multiple concurrent
sessions. This could be disabled, but I'm not sure what the
consequences would be; presumably this mechanism is there for a reason
(although it might only be necessary to prevent concurrent access to a
given mapset).
