I like the fact that you can pass a default value in the XfceRc functions.

gchar*              g_key_file_get_string               (GKeyFile *key_file,
                                                         const gchar *group_name,
                                                         const gchar *key,
                                                         GError **error);

const gchar*        xfce_rc_read_entry                  (const XfceRc *rc,
                                                         const gchar *key,
                                                         const gchar *fallback);
