Apple sneaks MobileMe into Vista

Remember when Apple snuck Safari into Windows machines via the iTunes Software updater application?  The uproar was significant...but it passed 

You think Apple would try that that kind of tactic again?  The answer is already upon us....

It appears that the latest iTunes "trojan" has put MobileMe into at least one Vista owner's machine. According to him, he only updated his itunes to the latest version.  However, the iTunes update installed a MobileMe control panel.

Notice the new Control Panel at the bottom of the list below?

Has this happened to any other Windows machines out there?  I'll bet it has, but no one has seemed to notice...
