Thanks for these ideas Martin.  It seems as I would have to update to the
development version to use these though, as none of these functions are
available in my Debian testing version (corresponding to GRASS 6.0.2).  An
off-list exchange showed me that other very handy options (like
copying/pasting objects in the GUI) is not available in my version.  I
also heard it's possible to obtain development GRASS Debian versions, so I
may try that route.  Thank you all.
