Oddly enough, in the server world they praise duplication, redundancy
etc. :-) I think development duplication is not always bad - it lets
us evaluate different designs and approaches and pick the best of
breed. We just need to by choosy and only add one candidate for each
functional area into QGIS as it ships. Especially leading up to 2.0 we
need to declutter and unit test what we have rather than duplicate
