GConf will make this easier... for apps that use it. Which is
currently only Nautilus. 

For Nautilus, you can (as root) set up defaults using gconftool.
There's not a very nice UI yet, but a long bash script calling
gconftool over and over should work fine.

e.g., set /foo/bar to the integer 10 by default:
  gconftool --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults \
            --type=int --set /foo/bar 10

(run this as root)

These defaults will affect all systems using the given /etc.
