DSLR sensor more important than the lens?

The sensor is just part of the chain in the digital workflow. Lenses, processing algorithm, metering and everything else matters to different extent, but they still play a part in affecting the outcome. If the sensor used is the only consideration for choosing a digital camera, I guess we'll all be using Sigma digital cameras with the Fovean sensor...
