It's been mentioned, but so far I've been unconvinced of strapping it
onto an already huge project.
GConf does have introspectable bindings, and while nobody is
contesting moving to gsettings, its effects would be limited to sugar
(not activities) and it would be an invisible change to the user. So
it doesn't need to be bolted onto the GTK3 project, and I think its
simpler to keep it separate, but it could certainly happen immediately
after as a separate step, and your help would be much appreciated

Yeah, there are a few branches around. A handful of patches have landed.
This weekend we'll be in paris to work on things like this. I'll make
sure that at the end of the session we have definitive documentation
of pending patches, and I'll put this on the Features/GTK3 page. Feel
free to join us on #sugar Saturday/Sunday/Monday if you want to help!
