there is a file, libgnomedb/data/libgnomedb.schemas, where all config
entries are added. This file is installed with GConf, so that we have
default values, documentation, etc, about all of our config entries.

Just open that file and add an entry for the new config key. As you open
the file, you'll see how to do it, since it's just XML.

yeah, a nice idea.

also lists and other structures, and floats, I think.

that would require a bit of work, but is also possible.
