Schemas are special mechanism of GConf that allows for giving some
interpretation of keys. You can think of them as meta-keys, that can:
a) specify type and name of key, so that it's known to gconf even if
b) give human readable description, ie. comments field you see in gconf-
So GConf schemas are for GConf what, well, XML Schemas are for XML ;).
Now answering your question - yes, for storing options you use can
GConf. Schemas are part of GConf, so in a way you'll be using them too.

Np, schemas are indeed hard to grasp at first.
