Mission Control from Ark Linux

I would like to propose that we include Ark's Mission Control in
Trinity. It pulls together some of the modules in KControl in a
reorganized way. The idea behind it is to have the things users use
the most pulled together in an easy-to-find way. It was written
(obviously) for KDE3, so it will need rewriting by a programmer for
TQt by someone more experienced at programming than me.

I have been slowly preparing my system to build Trinity. Once I get
more organized, I will be able to upload the source tarballs to
Mission Control on my personal space on, along with Ark's
related patches and spec files from the RPMs that will detail where we
apply those patches (these patches will likely need updating for the
TQt version). It will probably be a few days, have not had as much
time as I would like at the computer (weird work schedule and an
upcoming date with the pure hearted girl I've known for years <3 :-D),
though I should (at least) have it ready to upload by next week if you
guys are interested.

Currently I don't have a machine old enough to run our latest release
(2008.1) (a bit ironic that the poor fat geeky computer nerd would
want to "downgrade" his hardware to use the older hardware heh), but
perhaps someone using 2008.1 could take some screenshots? If I'm not
mistaken, our illustriously organized Borg with the Kmenus still uses
it, not sure if she still has the Mission Control capable KDE
