My view is that the shared config spec should be gconf with this delta
I think that would be possible to move GNOME to, and constitute enough
improvement over what GNOME has to make people want to move.
To succeed in a shared spec though, someone would have to go figure out
the similar statement from the KDE core developers, and then iterate the
two toward each other.
