It isn't a problem if KDE 4 are adopting Gstreamer which is glib 
dependent (and uses GObjects).

I doubt DConf would be adopted prior to KDE4 (or Gnome 3) due to the 
effort required in swapping over to a new system so I therefore cant see 
any technical reason to exclude glib from the daemon - feel free to give 
one if anyone has a genuine problem with it.
