Since it is an overpass predictor, it doesn't provide information on
previous landsat overpass.  Can I use this as a proxy to the hh:mm for
i.atcorr (me thinks no)?  Or set an arbitrary time say between 10:30
to 11:00?

Thank you for this one.

>> 4. removal of clouds
>> use i.landsat.acca

> Never tried, please report back.
Will do, via wiki.

As usual, thank you very much.
