Gnome Config thought

One configuration idea that I like is the theory behind the one
in id Software's Quake II -- basically, the client only has a pointer
to the data, while the configuration service stores the data. This
means that the data can be updated by the config service and the client
only needs to hook up a function to make the change happen. This also
means that with a well-written API the client can use a complex config
system without having to implement it itself. Is this applicable in
Gnome or is it useless in the current model?
