snap parameter in v.in.ogr's manual not explained

Description

The manual of v.in.ogr informs only that "snap=float" and that "Snapping threshold for boundaries, '-1' for no snap, Default: -1".

The manual links to "v.clean", yet IMHO, I shouldn't need more than just typing "v.in.ogr help" in the command line to be informed that snap values define "max. distance to another vertex in map units, degrees for latlon"

(Will propose a diff at some point, not very soon though)

Is this correct for the snap parameter in v.in.ogr: "max. distance to another vertex in map units, degrees for latlon"

?

Replying to neteler:

Yes, has always been so. Do you want it to be changed to "max. distance to another vertex in map units, meters for latlon" ?

The wish is to have the current method documented in vector/v.in.ogr/description.html.
