I suppose that this is OS specific. For example, one of many needed changes:

This depends on #3575 because it needs the path to mapset (the saving to the workspace part of #3575). Than the grass executable needs to read the .gxw file and use database/location/mapset (full mapset path) from there instead of expecting it in the command line, reading it from .grass7/rc file, or showing Startup window.

Now (v7.7) possible because d/l/m are in the workspace (#3575).
