Hi all.
My proposal:
* leave the duplication for 2.0
* go towards removing it for 2.1, *only* when a full testing framework is in place,
and we are *sure* everythiong is working properly
* leave shortcuts for the most commonly used functions (maybe a poll can help here),
and possibly an option "add to shortcut menu" for the user
* leave the commandline available for the programs that allow running it straight
away (gdal, grass, saga, ?), so users can reuse them in scripts etc.
All the best.
