People from the Technical University Delft have created an automated way for: "Validation and Automatic Repair of Planar Partitions". It is called 'pprepair'.
It's pure c++ but has cgal as dependency.
Code is here: https://github.com/tudelft-gist/pprepair
Some theory: http://www.gdmc.nl/ken/files/12_osgis.pdf
And Barry blogging about it: http://geospaced.blogspot.nl/2012/09/fixing-polygons-with-pprepair.html
A Processing provider would be much welcome, as it would solve very tricky issues, especially when merging layers with different precisions. To be really usable, pprepair packages should be available for major platforms.
