Hi Ian,

thanks for your hint. The problem is that I have to collect all the files in
the different subdirectories that are related to my layer (well it's not
only one file per layer) and put them in all the corresponding
subdirectories in my folder - that's what makes it so pedestrian.

Marco, I haven't heard of a module for this, but it seems like you
could also just do this through a window manager (windows, mac, etc.),
just navigate to the distant mapset, copy it, and paste it in your
location and mapset, like you would do with any other non-Grass kind of
file.  At the same time, you would be able to see what is in their
directory for a list of raster/vectors/etc.

Not very helpful I guess but good luck nonetheless,
