Provide an easy upgrade from GRASS 6 to GRASS 7

GRASS 6 vectors have to be upgraded to be used in GRASS 7. I suggest to provide an easy tool to do that, or a hint for user about what to do.
IMHO there are two main options, non exclusive:
  • a contextual menu on the browser (this may only include v.build, the db switch must be made separately)
  • an additional command "Migrate grass vectors" which points to a simple script chaining the three commands described in https://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Convert_all_GRASS_6_vector_maps_to_GRASS_7
    I like the second option, perhaps adding a tooltip on the Browser "Please migrate vectors by using the `Migrate grass vectors` command"
