Quick interesting chat with Luca Delucchi and Martin Landa from GRASS
dev team.
One interesting option would be:
* to add GRASS browsing capabilities in QGIS file browser
* to add support to direct GRASS reading (possibly writing) in
Processing, and avoid import/export whenever possible; v.external and
v.out.external could be used for this; this is probably the thoughest part
* of course modules should be upgraded anyway
* GRASS direct digitizing can be skipped; heavy digitizer can use GRASS
* keep a GRASS shell?
* with all the above, upgrading the plugin may probably be skipped.

Any thoughts.
