Actually, here is another idea. Havoc's feature Gnome article mentions
that GConf can have replacable backends. Currently the only backend
available is XML-formatted text files. How about someone writes
a win32-only backend that just uses the Window's registry.
This would ease porting apps from *nix to windows and vice-versa.
