Not usually. The system wide defaults and mandatory databases are
usually readonly (see the readonly flag in /etc/gconf/2/path) and we
don't attempt to coalesce the files in a readonly database.
One time that we will coalesce files in the system wide databases is
when installing schemas with --makefile-install-rule. For example,
installing the schemas in libgnome will cause the following files to be
Rather than the bunch of %gconf.xml files that would have been created
when installing using an older version of GConf.
