and disabling the cursed thing is not especially easy and impossible
for the typical home user. If I want to be lazy and "discover local
printers" I'd prefer to click on such a button that enables the service
for 10 minutes and then shuts the &#(@ing thing down.

I find it exceedingly annoying that some capabilities have to be killed
thru hand mangling of .xml files, or editing system config files or
using the control panel. If you're going to have a GUI to control
services, then by gosh that GUI had better handle EVERY service! It's
OK to have an "expert" button that deals with the more essoteric stuff,
lest the lusers have to expend too many brain cells.
