Actually, this could be more than just specifications.  An open source library
of common configuration options could be devised to which KDE and Gnome GUIs
could attach to change the configuration.  Toolkit-specific stuff would only
show up in the particular toolkit's GUI.  Sounds like a cool idea for yet
another project.
