We do, but as we are in System Settings that's the standard,
and you can call one alone if you want, they are plugins, one for
each settings, install and update.

So the new GUI is the same as the old GUI, but instead
of 5 different windows there are now 5 different tabs ?
Doesn't seem to make all that big a difference really,
more like web browsing in new windows or in new tabs...
For instance KPackageKit does have the "Packages Sources"
and "Software Management" and "Update Viewer" in 1 window ?
Integrating the "Advanced" is more problematic, since it's
outside of PackageKit and varies greatly between backends.
