Processing lastools do not find bin directory on Windows

Description

This issue is twofold:

  1. the OSGeo4W\\bin folder should be autodetected as place where lastools live (like GRASS, SAGA and the like folders are being detected)
  2. the (on Windows) common situation of white-space in the path name (e.g. "C:\\Program Files\\QGIS Essen") should be handled. Otherwise one gets the following error message:
Algorithm las2dem starting...
'C:\\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, 
operable program or batch file. 
Converting outputs
Loading resulting layers

The following layers were not correctly generated.
Output raster file
You can check the log messages to find more information about the execution of the algorithm

If I'm not wrong, LAS tools are not included in OSGeo4W, so for me there is no sense to try to detect them here.

Yes, indeed. I confused it with liblas...
lasinfo and the like might be useful in processing too.
But that is probably a different issue, so I am closing this one...

Some providers are being removed from QGIS/Processing (will be available as plugin) and so are their categories in the bug tracker. To not leave them orphaned of a category they are being reassigned to processing/core.
