[GRASS-user] truncate column names for export?

Dear all,

Is there an option to automatically truncate column-names (sqlite) to 
fit for export format in v.in.ogr?

Export to shapefile, creates errors as soon as the column-names are 
longer then the dbf-format can handle. It would be great to have an 
option to automatically truncate and give out a warning instead of an 
error. In case of same column-names (after truncating), last letter 
could be replaced by a number.

However I don't see that this is implemented yet - or did I miss something?
