most fTools functions already implemented as threaded, but there are some
minor issues. I work on improving processes handing in fTools, and several
tools already don't block main QGIS window, has non-modal dialogs and allows
to cancel running process.

Also I think about rewritting fTools in C++ and integrating its
algorithms into QGIS
analysis library. This makes tools a bit faster and will allow to use
algorithms in
