Configuration database system for GNOME

GConf extends the concept of a configuration registry. It provides a simple way for applications and administrators to store data; often GConf is used to store preferences for applications.

Some of the features of GConf are GConf provides

* Documentation for each configuration key, so that administrators
  can better modify the value.

* Notifications to interested applications when configuration data
  is changed.  The notification service works across networks,
  affecting all login sessions for a single user.

* Proper locking so that configuration data doesn't get corrupted
  when accessed by multiple applications at the same time.
