I can't see any reason for both the 'Control Panel' and 'Settings' to exist.
Why not take the Setting window as the main window, and add the elements from the Control Panel as a new tab (such as the existing General, network, Sharing etc). This new tab could be called status and be the first (i.e. on the left).

Check ticket #2939, that seems close to what you are suggesting.

Hm, I don't think this is that similar to the new GUI, but either way, making the one window that's suppose to be open all the time be the configuration window (even with a status tab) doesn't seem like the best idea in terms of usability. Yes, you won't have to make two more clicks to get to the configuration, but your configuration shouldn't change that often, and this is probably more error prone for most regular users.
