I just changed the thumbnailer configuration to be stored in GConf. I 
expect thumbnailers to ship with schema files so that is will be quite 
easy to enable/disable them.

The settings are stored in /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers. The "disable_all" 
key disables all external thumbnailers. Then there is a directory per 
mimetype you want to thumbnail (named like: application at x-foo-bar) with an 
"enable" boolean key and a "command" string key.
