I've recently converted to preferring dconf instead of writing our own
solution. I didn't make this opinion public at the end of the last MCS
thread however.

I really like your code Brian. It comes very close to what I
had in mind (actually, it's almost identically except a few API
differences) and I'm glad someone finally came up with code, since I
hardly have the time for it.

So ... let's use it! It's not much code, it's almost ready for being
used and it's also somewhat similar to dconf (although it varies in
details). If there really is a need to switch to dconf later then
switching shouldn't be too much work. And who knows when dconf will
finally be released (as alpha, beta etc. version). 

I'd also offer myself to co-maintain xfconf if that becomes or is
