Very good. If GSettings is gtk's replacement for GConf, we should use it. I 
would not recommend starting our own wrapper or replacement of such a 
preference function. I would also not recommend going for ini files because in 
that case we have to deal with locking and multi-app access issues on our own 
as well, which are always painful to deal with.

Both are fine for me.

Not my preference, too.
