I recall that a couple of releases back gnome-control-center was
considered for inclusion by default in Ubuntu. Has it been
reconsidered for Intrepid?

I tried Suse recently and one of the obvious things that was done
better than Ubuntu was that it didn't have the awkward
"Administration" / "Preferences" distinction for configuration tools.
For me it's one of the most uncomfortable things about our desktop,
and gnome-control-center would make a big improvement, if it is
suitable for inclusion.

It strikes me that Intrepid is an ideal release to introduce something
like this. If it's already been considered and rejected, perhaps you
could point me towards an explanation of the reasons.
