Calling algorithms from SEXTANTE doesn't have to be done through the
command line. In fact, the idea behind SEXTANTE is to make it as easy
as possible to create your own algorithms, and that might be writing
it directly in Python, calling a 3rd party app on the console, or
doing it through a Python binding

Of course, but it would also be great to join platforms or at least
improve one based on the other. I will be at Lyon for the developers
meeting (looking forward to it!!): Any chance that you might attend
the meeting as well??
