Every cell has a largest value (provided that the cell is non-null in
at least one input map).
The problem can be solved by running "r.series method=max_raster",
then filtering each input map, setting a cell to null if the input
map has the largest value for that particular cell, then running
"r.series method=max" on the filtered maps.
But that's very inefficient compared to implementing a
"second-largest" aggregate directly.
