Calm down.

I dont believe anyone here wanted to piss off any of the developers from 
any desktop.

My understanding was DConf was attempting to gather requirements for a 
cross desktop solution rather than bolting off and becoming a straight 
clone of GConf. I have not seen the requirements if any exist but the 
person in charge of it should be discussing these with the KDE and Gnome 
teams so that we can get a solution thats acceptable.

I personally dont care whether the solution is UniConf, DConf or some 
other bastardised GConf based system just so long as we have something 
usable and acceptable. The lack of synergy here between the big two DEs 
in a very important freedesktop project is very worrying indeed :(
