I've noticed one drawback of dbus over orbit. The dbus session does not
carry over into su or sudo while the gconf+orbit did worked. For some
programs I wanted to used as root it made a difference (namely meld).

While I don't suspect that there are many programs used in su/sudo that
uses gconf it might be good to note that the switch may break some
setups. Please threat this e-mail as information rather then
"vote"/voice against the move.
