Another thing is that Gnome 3 provides different configuration keys than
Gnome 2 - gnome-shell and friends are completely different beasts.  I'm
sure we'd need to implement lockdown-friendly keys in Gnome 3 for things
that are missing.

Archive it away, I'd say... since you are the maintainer, do you
remember anything particularly interesting/tricky in the implementation
of Pessulus that may be useful to implementors of similar stuff for
Gnome 3?

(Sabayon is in a similar situation - it's just not useful for Gnome 3.
If you archive Pessulus, would you be able to move Sabayon as well in
exchange for a promise of beer?)
