Bah! The doc mentions it isn't atomic for now, and this isn't even what
you're asking, you want it the other way around. Sorry.

I guess that if the type of the configuration values all are the same,
you could set them under a single configuration key as a list of that
type. Otherwise, delaying notification of changes to the application
until you haven't received a gconf notification for x seconds sounds
like a simple and reasonable solution.
