I haven't confirmed it yet but I suspect that as the grass man pages
shouldn't be available until one has entered grass, the man pages
won't get indexed the whatis/apropos database, say in a debian package
or rpm of grass. Thus one would miss out when doing
$ apropos coordinates
mapproject (1) - Forward and Inverse map transformation of 2-D coordinates
project (1) - project data along a line or great circle... translate coordinates.
and only see say the gmt man pages.
P.S. maybe grass's man pages should bear (1grass) as the section
number instead of (1). [Same goes for gmt's].
Anyway, apropos(1) should be a consideration of a package maintainer.
