A main reason for using G_done_msg() is that when run from a GUI it is not
clear when the module has finished. Preferably the module's GUI output would
[green check mark] "$MODULE complete."
when the process has stopped but in the past (tcl gui) it was unclear how to do
If the module is run from the command line the message is mostly redundant.
Right now from the GUI you get output like:
Loading raster map <> ...
Writing map ...
n features cleaned
But there really isn't any indication that the module is done.
so really G_done_mgs() use is a sypmtom of a GUI shortcoming which is impinging
onto other things.
