I'm not following the logic.  The Home View lets you launch programs
in Sugar, and the menu bar lets you launch programs in GNOME.  The
Neighborhood View lets you configure networking in Sugar, and the
NetworkManager applet lets you configure networking in GNOME.

The Control Panel lets you disable idle-suspend in Sugar, but
there's no functional analog in GNOME, so we're fixing that.
Nothing further is implied.

(To give a more straightforward answer:  "No.")
