dconf won't be made to listen to GConf.  One alternative, though, is
that a GSettings backend could be written that uses GConf (and its
existing database) instead of dconf.  This would allow applications to
use the new API to access their existing settings in the existing

dconf could be brought in later.

I'm not sure this makes sense.  You get (some of) the benefits of the
nice new API but no performance improvements.
