Would it possible to add a way to remove a Mapset, or multiple Mapsets, from the command line? For example, add a "remove" or "delete" or "erase" function to the existing
Points to consider:
- This functionality should not be allowed, of course!, to request for a removal of the current Mapset. It should only allow for removal of other(s) than the current Mapset.
- Only the owner of another, than the current, Mapset, or the "admin" (creator of PERMANENT?), will be able to remove it.
- Following the existing way of removing "elements" of a Mapset, a force flag
-fcould be required, in order to actually remove such a directory, and all of its contents.
- Such an option would, maybe, make for a safer practice, if implemented correctly, rather than leaving as the only option to remove a Mapset directory, directly via the host OS' deletion functions.
