The "new" python Sextante is in the QGIS plugin, which I think we're 
already shipping. It's not a classic fork in my understanding because 
one of the key authors is the same for both variants. Although it's 
actually possible that the python version may become the primary one and 
wrapped by java in gvSIG rather than being maintained in java.

So, I don't think there's anything else to do about it for us.
