- If a command comes with a single map parameter, it is map (v.info etc) 
- If a command comes with input and output, it is input and output
- If a command supports raster and vector and ... the type is specified
 e.g., r.univar [-qg] input=name is *not* following the logic.
Unfortunately it's still inconsistent. See discussion here:
