In GRASS 6.1-cvs I have updated v.label, d.paint.labels, and ps.map's
"labels" instruction to the point where I think it all works pretty
well. In 6.0 the above commands will work but setting font size, e.g.,
might be a pain.

Fine tune placement by tweaking the offsets in the labels file with a
text editor.

If no one else gets to it first I'll update the wiki when I return to
civilization in a few weeks time.

This isn't like d.rast.num or d.rast.arrow, but could be with a
r.to.vect + v.label step.
