[ros-dev] Autoplay configuration.

I would like to suggest the addition of a little feature into ReactOS.
Here there is a little reference to be read near my suggestion:
Autorun could be useful, but sometimes it's very annoying.
So: what about adding a little page somewhere for configuring it?
Into Win9x it was partially configurable on CD/DVD units, but newer versions of Windows lost completely this ability.
I think that a little page with some check-boxes:
[ ] Disables Autoplay on removable drives
[X] Disables Autoplay on fixed drives.
would be really cool because it fixes a mess into modern Microsoft's products.
I think it can be done in 100 lines of code (perhaps even less).
If we decide that it can be added, we just need to decide where we could put them.
I know that ReactOS haven't autoplay feature yet, but adding its configuration isn't too difficult.
Where can it be placed?
Personally, I wouldn't add a new applet into the control panel only for it.
Or if you don't want it at all, or you don't want it for now, it's ok too.
