Hmm... so for kubuntu.. it is ok to have a gtk based window decorator
but not a gconf based config system? Anyway, compiz can have different
configuration backends as I understand it.. so I don't see why someone
have to rip out gconf? Can't it just be replaced on xubuntu/kubuntu but
still be default on ubuntu?
