I don't see why all 6 run levels cant each be a column in that table.
The field would be a list box where user can select "start" or "kill"
(GTK does allow for replacing field renderers right?). Simple mode would
only show runlevel 5 but in that case the column heading could be
"Action". I think having to switch between tabs just to get a holistic
picture of which services are starting/stopping when is inefficient. All
the information can be safely and cohesively displayed in one pane. For
proof, see '/sbin/chkconfig --list'
