I still have a major problem with the backend selection in GSettings.

If we were to run gsettings-data-convert on start-up, it would migrate
from GConf to GSettings' keyfile backend.

I would actually want GConf to GConf migration in this case, because I
renamed the key.

The backend selection is also completely broken if one were to use
plugins from different applications.

For example, gnome-bluetooth's wizard has plugins for application
integration. Amongst those are a NetworkManager plugin, and a geoclue
one. If one of those used GSettings with the gconf backend and the other
GSettings with another backend, we'd have a real problem.
