Hey, Thanks J Phani for this contribution!
As explained to Jorge on IRC yesterday, still some work is needed to 
integrate it into ubuntu:

It would be better to use the python gobject gsettings binding rather 
than calling subprocess for gsettings reset directly. Also, not having 
the list hard-coded by detecting which schemas are installed on the 
system: otherwise, gsettings might fail if you reset a schema which 
isn't installed, and you can miss some if you don't reset extra plugins 
not part of the default install. (And the default list can also change 
over releases).
