Yes, I'm always happy to point out what others programmed wrong. I guess
that's how I cope with my complex of a non-programmer :).

Points 1 and 3 are good ideas. Nice if we had a place to store all the
information. A section in GRASS wiki? How do we do it (I've never used WIKI 

My first idea is to collect all the links to info on DEM interpolation
programs that support other data than contour lines and points only.

> any others ideas?

Yes. Let me know if ridicolous. If we get enough people interested, and
agree on what is missing in v.surf.rst and what is realistic to be added,
could we collect enough money to, at least partly, reward the programmer who
would implement these features for the community?
