I was having a think about the Network preflet today...
I'm not 100% sure "Network Services" belong there.
Long term, if we get non-network related services launched from the
service kit, are we going to put them in the network preflet?

The service kit? You mean the launch_daemon? :-)

Does it make sense to remove the network services from the network preflet
and look into creating some new "System Services" preflet?

I don't think so, but it's not a simple topic.
Generally, I think having the network services in the network preferences make a lot of sense. They don't need to be in one list as they are right now, but I think it was even you who started the app this way? I just didn't change that when I reworked it.

Apart from that, either a separate tab, or a network specific "Remote access" preferences app would make sense. I would not mix internal services with network services in one preferences application, however.

Long term, internally, the launch_daemon should take over launching the network services, too. But from a user's point of view, enabling SSH is something very different from launching Clipdinger at startup.
