See my posting "plans for system-config-services, was: early-gdm redux"
on fedora-desktop-list. Basically: yes, s-c-services is confusing to
users right now, one thing to make it easier is remove the visual
distinction between SysVinit and xinetd based services by way of tabs. I
don't think anybody wants to tell s-c-services which type of service
shall be configured ;-). That's one thing I want to change for Fedora 9,
I've planned more and will hopefully get around to it all.
