sorry, i was a little upset and furious about not having the
possibility to make what i want to do :-(
i know many interesting apps are available, but when you touch on some
part of the system, like sync setting you can't do nothing :-(
the permission signatureOrSystem should also let user able to sign
their apps with android root certificate for example, or something, to
let dev guy able to do think about setting... and once again,
disclaimer are there to warm user about what application try to do...

sorry, i'm not able to show you, but i found some explanation about
accessing and changing setting available on sdk 1.1
but didn't find the page any more :-(
but my main gaol is that : even if it's not implemented, we should be
able to improve the system with dev request.
