gconf is left disabled in Xubuntu, as we're trying to minimise the use 
of gnome libs and consequently resource usage. gconf is not such a big 
offender in this regard as some others but I am not sure if the gnome 
thumbnailer support is worth the addition.

The downside is that a nice thunar feature is not available in ubuntu so
I need to think about it more.

And gconf is shipped by xubuntu since it's an indirect dependency of 
gdm, but not used by any other app besides it. So shipped and installed 
on the disk but that's not the resource usage I am that concerned about, 
it's more when it adds up to startup time and takes up a couple of megs 
of RAM while the daemon is running.
