That's not what I've read. From what Havoc says I think the main point is 
that the preferences should be a minimum. Only what makes sense to 
end-users, everything else can go into gconf if it makes sense to have it.

The things I mentioned are not in gconf and still matter to me. I don't 
need them in any preferences though and if the majority thinks it is 
absolutely useless, that's ok too. But I really don't agree that there can 
only be defaults. That's too

Well, I don't know whether to agree. Maybe an applet would be cool. If 
only I was a real GNOME programmer. Oh well, stick to packaging for now ;p

Thanks for the feedback.
