Actually, I'm a person who hates GUI filemanagers but likes the idea of a
shell for launching configuration 'thingies':

	* I can bind launching that shell to a keybinding

	* I can prelaunch it, minimise it and easily bring it back

	* Most importantly, I don't have to go groping around in some
	  stupid menu to change the configuration

There isn't a convinient command line access to gnome configuration (at
least compared to access to file system operations).
