Right; mainly because it's user settings, allowing any program to add
connections isn't necessarily secure.  However, any program can write
GConf so it's mostly a misnomer.  In the future we do want to allow
this, subject to various security considerations or at least
notifications.  For now, only system settings allows connection addition
because it actually validates caller's via PolicyKit.
