[Qgis-developer] SAGA Interface

I understand your point Paolo, and I can't contribute to C++ coding now, so
I can't support it practically.
- if Camilo can do it, he's welcome. I suppose he's conscious of what it
means, also from a lon term support point of view... With GRASS module we
have the same issues, am I wrong?
- without a low-level interactions between QGis and SAGA, what is the real
usefulness of this plugin? SAGA needs to be installed anyway (and it's
easy), we already can import/export between the two's... Ok all the effort
would be directed to avoid opening the SAGA interface. Mmm, I don't see such
a great gain to justify the effort.
Just two cents to share opinions. I'm just wondering....
