No, it doesn't use schemas -- I wanted to keep complexity down and
didn't think they'd be worth the effort (I'm still pretty against them,
but I'm not quite so opposed as I used to be).

In theory, though, there's a defaults mechanism -- you can put a
normal .xml file (like one that stores the settings in ~/.config) in
one of the $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS dirs, but I didn't really think that
through, and there's a problem with *removing* xfconf properties when
there's a system property (i.e., it won't work).

So for now we're just going to use hardcoded defaults in the app until
I can figure out what the best thing to do with xfconf to make setting
defaults a bit easier.  (Hopefully by beta2!)

Ok, I'll try to give it a look; I definitely didn't have the default
theme on my machine, so I guess I haven't tested it.
