   Yes, there is room for improvement in both ps.map and g.gui.psmap. Perhaps
Martin Landa has another undergrad student in need of a degree project. :-)

   So far my use of g.gui.psmap has been fairly simple and I like that I can
place objects more easily than by changing coordinates in the .psmap file
and recompiling.

   Both ps.map and g.gui.psmap are very useful and for many purposes
(including mine) are more practical than using a different application such
as qgis.
