The current GSHHG data release number is 9, the current GSHHG data
version number is 2.2.2, and the current GSHHG software version is
1.13. v.in.gshhs has been updated with r56356 to support the latest
release. In contrast to v.in.ogr, v.in.gshhs imports the shorelines as
lines, not sure if this is what you want.
