That distinction is often not very clear either and often is a

Also a role based yast that allowed users to "sync" their user
preferences to the system (for instance timezone) would eliminate some

Timezone: Europe/London

Or something to that effect.


I completely agree,

But I don't think mixing kcontrol with YaST is the way to go. You can't
say YaST is a monster and suggest to make it even more confusing.

YaST is right now complex because a desktop user does not care about
having the cluster setup together (or at the same level of importance /
visibility) with setting up a printer or adding a software repository,
and that is what we have to fix.
