Mathias made the patch
(http://bugzilla-attachments.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=118981 ) to
make at-spi support XSettings.
>From a11y side, gail and atk-bridge/atk-adaptor, as GTK+ modules, should
be able to be loaded at any time. If there is no registry daemon
running, for CORBA version, at-spi-registryd will be started through
Bonobo activation (atk-bridge does this job); for D-Bus version,
at-spi2-registryd should be started through D-Bus activation
(atk-adaptor does this job).
There are also gnome_accessibility_module_shutdown functions for these
A11Y modules. Maybe we need a unified way to shutdown GTK+ modules.
