I second that.  We should not put strong requirements on contributions.  Neat
things could not find their way into QGIS if we require people to jump though
many hoops.

C++ code without SIP bindings is better than no code a all.  The SIP bindings
could also be added by someone else.

If people need more than there is, they can always ask for it (filing a feature
request), (learn how to) add it themselves or ultimatly hire someone to do it.
