OK maybe not in QPA itself… but we have other modules that go a little into system management territory, like Bearer Management, Bluetooth device discovery, sensors, system info etc.  (As it is, I also wish the Bluetooth support were a bit more complete: you can discover devices but you can't actually complete the pairing, AFAICT.  Is it because someone thought that's going too far, or because it's extra work remaining to be done?)

Writing a portable task manager would be a nice thing to be able to do with Qt Quick.  The portability is the challenging part which is not done AFAIK (or did KDE do it already?)  It could of course be in an add-on module.
