I would rather rasterize at different grain size the same vector layer and
then vectorize it. Just using g.region, v.to.rast, and r.to.vect

> 3. calculate the vertices of your polygon based on the x and y coords.
> 4. Add new feature with v.edit
> 5. add vertices to feature with v.edit.
> 6. repeat for each point in points vector layer.
