I am not sure about this for the timeframe we want to do it. I think
this should be revisited after we have a control center that is beeing
used out there. Windows XP removed the "task based" control center from
their previous beta for some reason (or at least we could not find it
anymore), maybe it didn't worked well in usability testing.

But if you want to give it a shoot, feel free to do ;-)
