If we simply decide on which backend to use for bonobo-config, then
that is a 1-line change to implement either way, so doesn't endanger
any schedules.

We can also change this post-API-freeze, so could even use the whole
RFP process to decide it with plenty of time to spare.

I would like to point out:

 - I think it was my maintainership that was challenged/ignored in
   this case, not Martin's.
 - I had already implemented the GConf stuff in libgnome, so 
   it's not a matter of patches vs. visions - the patch has been 
   in libgnome for over a year to use GConf.

So I really don't think that Martin's maintainership is being
challenged, libgnome's course of action should flow from decisions on
lower levels about config systems. And it's not a matter of not doing
the work in libgnome, since I did it over a year ago.
