I was thinking about the same thing. Creating a simple framework for
the tools seems like a logical step. The framework would maintain the
list of tools and automatically create GUI for the tools. Take a look
at GRASS toolbox in QGIS, it works exactly in this way - it just runs
external grass commands.
