We dont need a solution to this for Dconf at this point. However I 
suspect the keys will look something like :

Key						Value
org.freedesktop.bookmarks.web.1.displayname	Slashdot
org.freedesktop.bookmarks.web.2.displayname	Linux Today

org.freedesktop.bookmarks.folder.1.uri		/home/jamie/documents
org.freedesktop.bookmarks.folder.2.uri		/home/jamie/hacking
