[Qgis-developer] Make QGIS interact with LibreCAD.

Would it be possible as a first interaction if all the CAD/Drawing tools be merged into a single plugin so the plugin library be less crowded and we knew exactly what tools are available? I disagree that some users wont be interested in this tools, some users are just doing analysis and that is fine but to be able to perform analysis and models you sometimes have to create the data, having the tools to create the data is part of every COTS GIS software and it should be part of QGIS. Of course if a user is just doing analysis he would just hide the tools

I would prefer if most of the editing tools would be available in core

- - and if possible - implemented in C++.

I'm not sure if I agree with that : getting a snapping engine that works smoothly will require a lot of tweaking, which is a pain in C++ compared to python.

Also, some user will be interested in adapting the snapping engine to suit their particular habits, which is easy when working with python plugins. And some other users won't be interested at all in this kind of tools.

About the problem of installing multiple plugins : it would of course be much more elegant if all the CAD-drawing related tools were neatly packed in one plugin, which could then even be preinstalled or "featured".
