I'm not completely sure about what you are asking; but a couple of
possible answers :-)
- XSETTINGS is a read-only protocol. It's for the desktop to export it's
configuration to applications. How the desktop maintains and stores
it's configuration is outside the scope of XSETTINGS.
- XSETTINGS is a protocol, like the window manager protocols in
the ICCCM. Not a library.
There is a sample client implementation that can be found at
http://freedesktop.org/Software/xsettings and can be cut-and-pasted
into your application. I'd advise getting it from CVS, there may
be some fixes in there that aren't in version 0.2.
