yes, makes sense.

nothing, it's just GConf, which loses changes sometimes, at least for me

hmm, this needs more work, since we have to integrate the configuration
for all the components in that dialog. What we need is to have each
component export its configuration dialog. I'm not sure yet how to do
it, so please, leave me some days to figure this out.

no, that is the 'General' configuration tab, which just will contain
config settings for the shell, and for some system-wide
libgnomedb/libgda settings (font to use for grid, etc). And that setting
you are trying to add (which widget to use as output) belongs to the
'Database' component, which will be implemented outside of
gnome-db-shell-settings.c. So, please, don't add anything to that file
until we figure out what's the best way to do the config settings.

I'll send right now another mail with my thoughts on how to do the
config dialog, for discussion.
