I won't be there; sadly since I'm on holiday - so go for the
discussion - lets make it really uneducated, like the last spate !

It's extremely useful for any CORBA aware app - perhaps a
scripting binding - without it you get to wrap the gconf API for every
single scripting language; which just sucks.
However it does need some considerable fixage, and do some yucky
things with TypeCodes that might be good to hide inside the ORB.
I hope that libbonoboui will use uit to store its configuration in
due course to remove an explicit dependency on GConf, but for now it's
haced to use GConf - temporarily.
