The main issue right now with native QGIS algorithms is that they are
implemented in c++ (if not counting fTools and GdalTools), so binding
them to the python SEXTANTE interfaces would be cumbersome. A solution
would be to port the core SEXTANTE interfaces to c++ and add Python
wrappers to PyQGIS. I could help here if you are interested in doing
