That would be a very nice addition. For consistency you might use 
"-c" instead of "-a"  (from g.proj).

or -n from "v.digit -n", but I think g.proj is closer.

see  lib/gis/make_loc.c

consider adding a new lib fn G_make_mapset() there.

$newmapset/WIND should be copied from PERMANET/DEFAULT_WIND, not the
current region settings (??)
