Google Considering Customizable Quick Settings for Android L

I’d even be willing to argue that for most people this is near or at the top of the list–aside from root access, of course.
Just two days ago, we talked about how Google was considering the possibility of changing the way external SD cards are handled in the final Android L release this Fall. Now, we have learned that Google is also contemplating adding a customizable Quick Settings interface in the final Android L release this Fall.

While no concrete information is available just yet regarding how this will be accomplished–or even if it will be added–it’s certainly encouraging to see a feature number attached to this user request. Would you like to see a customizable Quick Settings interface in the final Android L release, or does this feature not matter much to you? Let us know in the comments below.
