The gui will be important for the largest amount of users, so I can not
see -controls without one.
But, of course, we could have command line options as well, or have a
separate command line tool with access to the same functions as the
-controls application.

The application will actually be in separate parts. One of them will be
dealing with system administration. There will be another part, which is
an indicator app.

This is the feature definition page for the new -controls, which is not
complete and needs to be reworked
