One thing I've never quite understood is why there is ~/.config AND
gconf. Both seem to do the same/similar things to me.
gconf is a gnome-specific system for storing preferences. ~/.config is a
for avoiding putting a shitload of dot-files directly in $HOME.
There are various reasons not to use gconf here.
a) its gnome specific
b) it requires a daemon to run
c) gconf data might be stored on ldap or something like that, we'd like
to match the config strongly with the homedir itself
