I was thinking about it and I talked to Mirek Lichvar about it. We will 
probably need a custom distribution path if we'd like to reuse system config 
interface Radek Novacek is working right now. I don't like it but it's not 
going to be upstreamable :( Same for other configuration modules... Another 
possibility is to have own custom KCM (next to system-config-date).
