Performance (especially on Desktop login, see some blog posts by Micheal
Meeks). And the code base is rather old and wasn't really maintained for
some time now which could make a bad base for hacking. It is also not
very tied to Glib/GObject (GValue vs. GConfValue, etc.).

But after Ryan's mail I guess the discussion could become obsolete.
Having someone working on dconf full-time is certainly better than
having noone working on gconf.
