I see. So you'd suggest to keep only Sextante code (where duplicates
exist!) but provide shortcuts from the menu? I'd +1 that.
I've been testing a variety of functions in the menus and in Sextante over
the last days and there are always some broken ones. Neither "package" is
without major bugs today.
We need to get it together for 2.0 and that's easier if we can focus on one.

Best wishes,
