Re: lock down features

Perhaps being slightly more constructive about your input would garner a
better response. "Wow, this would be really cool, how can I help?" vs. "This
is a disgrace, I can't believe this is not implemented yet."

Bit different.

GConf provides the infrastructure (and design considerations) for these
features, and already includes two backends (xml and bdb). Now Havoc has
brought up the goal of full lockdown capabilities, and without going off
topic too far or starting a mudslinging match, we'll probably develop a plan
for doing it.

Please, keep your contributions positive.

  So, "Jeffrey" seems to mean "the ineffectual, victimised guy in
  American movies" in four different languages.
