-As the title implies, this category is an attempt to bring together all the various system settings into one simple interface. Its goal is that each component programmer be allowed to continue to focus upon their own individual modular component of the whole, while at the same time, bringing together some sort of standardized method for reaching out to each module and interfacing its settings for the purpose of centralizing control.+As the title implies, this category is an attempt to bring together all the various system settings into one simple interface.

 Further, this roadmap will be useful in eliminating those disparate mechanisms of settings control that lead to odd behavior, overlapping subjects and loss of user control. Important as simplicity of user interface (intuitiveness) may be, eliminating unnecessary buggy behavior across the whole desktop environment is of paramount import, and hopefully will be largely addressed by this effort. It is possible to eliminate a large portion of bugs by just simplifying and standardizing. That can be win/win all the way down the road. Further, this roadmap will be useful in eliminating those disparate mechanisms of settings control that lead to odd behavior, overlapping subjects and loss of user control.
