AFAIK, GConf pretty much works on win32; but it's the dependencies that
it brings along that are very controversial.  Making GTK depend on ORBit
and libxml2 would also be a killer for embedded environments.

I wouldn't want to see GConf become a requirement for gtk on win32 or on
other platforms for that matter.  For this specific need, maybe all that
is needed is a way to register a global default function to open a url with the default implementation on win32 using the win32 api (which I think is a single call) and on linux/unix to use GConf if it is available.
