The problem is not there. That class has almost no GUI, except for a
couple of message boxes.

The problem is that SEXTANTE has to take the layers from somewhere,
and now is connected to the QGIS interface to do so. SEXTANTE itself
does not handle spatial data (does not open or save anything), but
uses QGIS for that. This is mostly done through a class called
QGisLayers, which could be replaced.

I however, think that it will not be so easy, since there are a few
other places where SEXTANTE is linked to QGIS. Anyway, I belive is
better to concentrate on the current version and work, and then move
to that. i have tried to keep things independent, so it will not be
too hard if we keep on developing code that is not directly linked to
QGIS elements
