This is fine by me, we just have to make sure that the find by 
attributes tool uses the same gui, and naming conventions as the rest of 
the fTools.

On a similar note, I was thinking of reorganising the Tools (fTools) 
menu to make it similar to the ArcGIS toolbox: a docking tree view list 
type  interface.
My idea being that as more and more analysis tools are create, it might 
be nice to have a simple architecture for organnising and keeping things 
sane. In addition to this, we could implement a base 'analysis' gui, 
which would essentially be a blank dialog with ok, cancel/quit, a 
progress bar, and some fancy QGIS analysis logo (currently in 
development) as the background. That way, new 'analysis' tools would 
simply have to add their required fields to this base dialog, keeping 
everything using the same conventions. It would be good to implement 
some simple way to automagically add the tools to the 'toolbox' as 
well... This of course would make it easier to add raster tools as well, 
which could also be part of the toolbox...

Anyway, these are just some ideas for the future...
