I am still not 100% sure why data from mapsets in different locations
with the same projection cannot be re-used in other locations.

Why there are no g.mapset.move, g.mapset.copy, g.mapset.remove comands.
Today' computers still have limited disk space...

A command g.mapset.proj could serve to reproject all data within a
certain mapset from one location to the other.

My qustions and posts where meant to obtain more fexibily and efficiency
in the dat organisation.
Why is there r.external or v.external?
Then why not g.external?
