Thanks, it's good that someone takes time to review the schemas! I
merely converted them so people couldn't use the excuse we don't have
them yet to not port their code to GSettings ;-)

Might I suggest that you take the opportunity at this point to extend the schema to at least consider support for multiple desktops / monitors. One of the difficulties that I found when looking at this in GSOC a few years back was that there was no way of supporting use of schemas when you had a dynamic number of items that needed the same configuration (e.g. background/screen0, background/screen1 etc), If this functionality is still not available with GSettings shouldn't it be put on the list of things to be addressed for the future?
