Re: Status of configurable global options (double-click timeout, etc.)?


Note that GTK probably will (at least eventually) have some way to set
object args from an RC file. That's a fine idea. But this is a
separate issue from using a magic global object for something like
double-click time, which has numerous disadvantages Owen pointed out
compared to the small config-database API. Including a) can't easily
proxy to GConf b) all config options have to be set up in one place,
instead of with the code that uses them c) hard to write GUI tools
that deal with gtkrc robustly without messing up hand-edited stuff.
There is no additional power that comes from using the magic global
object; you can't do anything with object args here you can't do with
the database API.
