There is a project GConfCleaner somewhere out there that scans gconf and offers
to purge all keys not associated with a schema - quite dangerous as there are
many apps unfortunately that do not install a schema. Because of that I would
even like to see schema being enforced. Thats one way to keep the database size
under control. Database size might matter less on the desktop, but I am thinking
about mobile devices here and there is does for sure.

Or do you have some different idea to detect unused keys (maybe atime, mtime and
ctieme attributes)?
