That is GNOME's gconf hierarchy which is a little bit like
microsoft's registry in windows. only thing is that gconf
is less obfuscated.

gconftool-2 -R /apps/metacity/general for example should print something

gconftool-2 -g /apps/metacity/general/reduced_resources
tells you the current value

gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/general/reduced_resources --type=boolean

changes the value (--type=something is important, gconftool-2 will bitch
if missing, does it exists keys which can have different types ?)

suggestion: switch off metacity's hunger with :

gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/general/reduced_resources --type=boolean

view the difference in metacity's behaviour when dragging a window
re-enable the hunger with
gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/general/reduced_resources --type=boolean

Read the man-page about gconftool-2.
The different settings applets changes applications behaviour/or look/or
whatever thru gconf and its API which is one reason why for example
theme changes is instant.
