People implementing this should probably bear in mind that if the user
is capable of getting an executable altered gconfd running, than this
'lock down' is somewhat a moot point.

Activating this locks can only be as effective as long as the user can't
change paths, execute commands like kill or chmod...

Thus, this "lock down' should be taken as a preventive method for
accidental changes that should not be promoted.

Or am I missing something?
