The calls in gnome-libs that use these may not need notification (I
guess they could just always reread the preference each time) but
other apps will want change notification for these. Nautilus cares
about the user's terminal preference for instance and may ormay not be
able to use gnome-exec. But I guess you are not suggesting we use
gnome_config for them.
