Hi all.
I like the way this discussion is going.
I suggested to postpone the removal of "old" commands because I think
there is still a lot to do in Sextante, and it would be risky to
remove well tested tools too early. Furthermore, it is still
comparatively easy to break some functionalities with small changes,
so until we have a proper, automatic test at every commit, I would
prefer to rest on solid ground.
If things change in the next month or so, I'd be the first to support
Sextante (as I've always been).
All the best.
