I don't think so. GConf keys should be used to store _user_ editable
preferences[1], and I can't see how users (and sysadmins for default and
mandatory values) can have any interest to set window geometry.

I don't know what's the best place and method to store geometry info
(note that gedit uses $HOME/.gnome2/gedit-2 ini style file) but I'm
strongly against GConf.

PS If we really want a --geometry option for all apps, maybe we should
add it directly in GTK+ to have a coherent behavior.
