in general I agree but I would like to see the integration even
further - the plugins should be ideally moved to QGIS itself (or even
its libraries). Delimited text plugin is a good example of what should
be available by default. Regarding fTools and gdal tools - their code
should be moved to the qgis_analysis library and ported to the
processing framework. However even the processing framework still
needs a lot of work and unfortunately there is not that much momentum
around it.
