GConf only uses ORBit, so we already get the shared lib stuff. However
gmodule still has a slightly smaller overhead. The main reason, though, is
just simplicity; using CORBA here would complicate things, and the
interface is private and not meant to interoperate with anything other
than GConf itself, and has no need to work over a network. So CORBA buys
nothing but more typing.
