But it is hierarchical... =)

Exactly, see the point of system:/ now? I'm aiming toward a simplified
hierarchy to help the user work better, if he's structured.

But not everything though searching _only_, hence why I still claim that
you'll need a hierarchy.

You're mixing the issues... With kcontrol redisigns it's always the same data
set displayed differently. The point of system:/ is to display a _different_
dataset which correspond to the desktop users task. So it _is_ an
improvement, but of course it doesn't solve everything (just like search
won't solve everything).
