Why isn't gconf-editor in the menus by default?

Hello everyone.

I have a question that's been bothering me for quite some time.

gconf-editor is a really powerful application when you want to tailor
your system. Even though it has about a million configuration options,
I think it's very user friendly, offering sensible key names,
descriptions of their functions and easy navigation (apps > appname >

The question is, then; why isn't it available in System > Preferences
by default?

Thanks for your attention,

Jo-Erlend Schinstad
