Something like GConf is just an abomination, imho. KDE has something like that kconfigeditor I believe - blegh. I must say I like recent ideas to build in search in configuration interfaces, let them be build dynamically etc - that might be very helpful.
Have you used gconf-editor recently? I find it's a decently discoverable GUI for so-called "hidden" preferences. Unlike Windows RegEdit it even explains what every switch does and which possible values it has. IMHO this is equivalent of having an "Advanced" button in every GUI. They are just all kept in a central place.
Of course I don't know whether the old gconf-editor will be ported to the new dconf world. But I suppose it will get written if there is a demand.
