If what you need is to have the tools in a menu, we have been
discussing that before, and the idea is to mantain the same menu
structure if the users wants that, but have the algorithms based on
Processing to avoid redundant (and more difficult to mantain) code. As
I said, this has already been discussed, but it is not yet
implemented. Maybe your funding could help us do it?

And if algorithms are not performant enough, it's clearly better to
put your effort in the Processing ones (which, in general, are just a
copy of the ftools ones), and have them exposed through the menus, as
explained above.
