OpenLayers is not a server, as well as google maps is not - they are
both javascript api

r.in.wms is (more or less) implementation of OGC Web Map Service [1]

If you want to get the map, which is displayed at
http://www.openlayers.org, you have to run r.in.wms like

r.in.wms mapserv=http://www2.dmsolutions.ca/cgi-bin/mswms_gmap
format="image/png" out=ol


AFAIK there is no api for google maps yet, but it should be possible
to implement it

new gdal (1.5x) has support for OGC standards as well
