It sounds like this is a place where potentially mixed GNOME 2.6/2.8
environments could get confused [1], with configuration from one not
being migrated to the other. Can we make sure that running different
versions of GNOME in the same homedir will stay sane, please? It's a
sort of ABI stability thing.

[1] "could" == "I haven't thought too much about it". It might be that
we migrate 2.6->2.8, and from then on the settings aren't moved
backwards again like the panel gconf change in 2.4. This isn't ideal,
but I suppose it might be ok.
