comment Startup python script to re-join layers
for sure! SQLite will give you the SQL / relational database functions you need to do this stuff much more easily and dynamically... then you'll move into PostGIS and all your problems will be solved!!!

comment Startup python script to re-join layers
any chance you could load your data into SQLite via QGIS and try these joins out in a relational-database environment?

comment One to Many / Many to Many
Judging from this and another question you posted about joins, you seem like a candidate for PostGIS or SQL Server...ie. a real relational database. The kind of data joining you're looking to do is difficult / cumbersome in a "GIS"...

comment How to calculate the shortest distance for multiple source and targets using PgRouting?
I'm wondering this too, as in: how can the pgr_kDijkstra function be used in the way the ST_Distance function is implemented... now THAT would be huge!

comment Why is the data missing in my new shapefile?
What version of QGIS are you running? In 2.4, the 'save as' context menu loads the 'save vector layer as' dialogue, which has a check-box for 'save only selected features'...

You have pictures already made you want to overlay in QGIS with some spatial data? Then do you want to re-export the entire scene out as 128x128 tiles?
