I indeed get annoyed if words such as "crap" are used in discussions.

Now you've seem to think I'm suggesting that every desktop implements
their on tool. But that is not what I've suggested.

Two things:
- One thing that is shared across distributions
- Another thing implemented in System Settings

These are two separate things. This does NOT require a XFCE "system
settings" tool, as it would be covered by the other tool. If you have
*one* tool that is shared across distributions, then there must be
standards to deal with the differences. Standards that can be used by
the (GNOME) System Settings, more or less duplicating what the other
tool does. Another possibility that more things are agreed upon between
distributions, which can then be implemented in System Settings, but is
still handled by various distro specific tools (MCC, etc) as well.
