If what you need is some tool "to do topological overlay", perhaps the best 
way is to use either GRASS (v.overlay & family) or QGis fTools plugin (very 
very similar to the good old "swiss army knife" XTools for ArcView GIS[1]).

If you need to work interactively, IMHO QGis (and its GRASS plugin) is the 
best tool. Should you prefer an easily programmable tools, maybe GRASS along 
with some bash scripting will do.

Of course, these are my 2 Eurocents...

[1] Rats! I mentioned ESRI software... My apologies ot the list, but who needs 
ESRI anymore? :)

E' meglio essere stimati che sovrastimati.
