I think it'd be good to analyse whether these really exist - it'd be a
terrible shame to go to the effort of unifying configuration only to seperate
it by namespace. Ideally, an app which can be built with either KDE or GNOME,
for instance, should have identical configuration in both.
I'm not actually certain of how that would ultimately help.
In any case, I suspect that differences in the data models employed will be
harder work to solve than namespace collisions.
