It's easier to copy whole mapsets, or even locations.

A raster map can be comprised of many different files; all of the
files have the same name, but live in different subdirectories of the
mapset directory. The directories for a raster map are:

	cell cellhd cats colr hist cell_misc fcell g3dcell

Most maps will only have files in a subset of those directories. Also,
the cell_misc directory has a subdirectory for each map rather than a
single file.
