The GNOME GConf library, which was part of GTK+ 2, has or is ending support soon, and downstream distributions will cease packaging.

* https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2018/02/msg00169.html
* https://developer.gnome.org/gio/stable/ch34.html

Sugar only kept GConf compatibility for upgrades from older versions of Sugar that did not use Gio.Settings.  That transition was long ago.  We must now remove this compatibility support.

* [ ] port Browse, Read and Write activities from GConf to Gio.Settings,
* [ ] remove GConf from Sugar, Sugar Toolkit, and Browse, Read and Write activities,
* [ ] remove GConf from any other activities.
