As GConf supports pluggable backends now, I wouldn't be surprised if a
prototype database backend could be hacked up in a day.

Why wait for DConf (assuming it actually fixes the other problems and
doesn't end up being another system which has no advantage over the DBus
port of GConf) when GConf has the framework needed now?
