and probably rename it "gnome-settings-daemon"

The idea here is to have the "view" for settings be this daemon thing,
and have the capplets be just GUI code, nothing else.

If we do this for mouse/keyboard I see no reason not to also do it for
background, i.e. it's a replacement for the --init thingies we have in
the default session right now.
