I vote no on this being removed. Drupal desperately needs a control 
panel page rather than a block adminstration list. This module suits 
that purpose. It just needs to be developed.

Developing this into a real control panel will allow the removal of the 
link list from the user list and simply usage for everyone. A control 
panel has more possiblities for improvements and seperates the 
adminstration from the user section which is a plus for all that use 
Drupal in a corporate or intranet environment.
