In the action setting,
actually the python is usable only inserting directly the python code.

But this deny the possible to use a very complex python code to do some very powerful action. Like create a specific form window, import some modules and to do more elaborations.

So would be good to add the choice to link an action to a
file with python code and passing it the parameters needed to do the action.

If I understand correctly, I think this can already be done. I use the following action in QGIS 1.7.0 to call a python script which writes field values out to a text file:
"C://Python26//python.exe" "E://Temp//my_action.py " %field_name
