I was only hinting that the backend interface was missing some 
functionality to do this. When this is in place, someone else could 
write this xfconf-editor, and You could concentrate on the nice dbus 
backend and API part.

One more thing ... could a "key-ring" functionality be included in the 
xfconf system too, to simplify things ? This would be really nice to 
have like a secure "channel" of a kind. If this is in place we could 
have plugins like NetworkManager ported to a pure Xfce env.

But I really like what have been done so far, good work !
