I'll let my debian packager know about this, but I'm not that worried
about it because I actually just finished porting to GSettings, so
GConf is no longer used ;-) Future versions won't have this repo.

Ok, I will consider adding opencyclemap manually. Just so long as I
can use factory.register() in order to continue simply iterating over
factory.get_registered() to build the  menu of available app sources,
then it won't be particularly onerous for me.
