This should be designed out; the "schema install" silliness in gconf
was just not a good idea. The way I think dconf works (and the
recommendation on is that schemas are
basically part of the app, much as glade files are, though in this
case they may be shared among apps. Anyway, hopefully "installing
schemas" just "dist_schemas_DATA = foo.schemas" in and
that's it.
