Cleanup System Menu

Registered by Russell Green on 2008-04-23

Currently in Ubuntu preferences and administration in the system menu is very cluttered.One example is there is a separate option for "keyboard" and "keyboard shortcuts".Another is "printing" and "default printer" also "Encryption and Keyrings", "Authorizations" and "Keyring Manager".There are others than could be cleaned up aswell.

All this does is confuse users and makes the menus harder to navigate, preferences don't even fit in my screen using 1280x800.These should be integrated together similar to "appearance" where "themes" "wallpapers" and "fonts" are integrated together along with other options.
