Most of the handy tools eg qgsmaptooladdfeature and the editing tool, that people could use to build external qgis based apps are not exposed via the API and have to be hand built in each app, which can be pretty involved.

I think we should expose anything that inherits from QgsMapTool; which would make building external editing programs a lot easier for beginners.
