Wow, that's a pretty elegant way to present things.

Have you used Sabayon?  It lets sysadmins configure which GConf keys are
default/mandatory using a clunkier interface (you select those options
from a list of keys-that-you-have-changed).  Your method is a lot more
direct.  It would be sweet if your menu "happened" automatically
whenever you run a Gnome session under Sabayon.
