Personally, I have no objection on this. Having the v.adehabitat.* code 
in the main GRASS code would be great for people working on 
radiotelemetry data. However, I wonder: these addons are not of interest 
for all GRASS users -- it is likely that they will be useful only to 
wildlife biologists. I proposed them as addons because I "translated" 
the logic of the R software to the GRASS software, trying to make some 
kind of "grass packages" which could be downloaded only by the 
interested users (in the same way as the package adehabitat with the R 
software). Of course, I may be wrong in translating the logic from one 
software to another? I am not that used to the rules of software 
development in GRASS... maybe experienced GRASS developers may indicate 
us whether this would be sensible?
BTW thanks Paolo for the update of the wiki!
