Hi Miguel,

I support Sextante's idea.

Migration is a stressful job for any user. Compatibility will increase by
these projects leading to easier transition.
Also, the argument about open source needing proprietary software works both
ways. ;)

In India, a typical GIS user doesn't bother to look into the software to
learn what is doing the work. Those who heard about FOSS have many doubts.
Seeing their favourite software using FOSS will be a big confident booster.

However, care has to be taken to ensure FOSS gets it's share of the
spotlight. Users should be able to see what is doing the work.

Best regards,
Chaitanya kumar CH.
