What stops You from going with vi to the ~/.gconf dir?
You will find there planty of xml files which are easy to edit.
GConf is a wrapper for that dir, nothing else, You don't need to access any config files in Your app, just use gconf to open/edit prefs.
Some people also don't like that amount of dot{file,dir} things in they home dir, one dir for configs is enough.
