I don't know if my opinion counts, but I would urge to make the 
thing X-independent.  Not everything that needs to communicate 
will be a graphical app.  There are already non-graphical desktop
support apps e.g. gconf; and something general allows it to be 
used in servers.   One must recognize that graphical desktop apps 
are often stronger when they can talk to servers (local or remote).

I've written a few server apps using gtkobjects, because I liked
the event/callback infrastructure.   I am happier now that we have 
graphics-independent gobjects.  Generic infrastructure shouldn't
require X11.
