PS: I have an alternative proposal for Ubuntu ... re-write dconf for Ubuntu to set not only the dconf database but also to make synchronous, sympathetic changes to Qsettings. Integrate Qt applications without requiring any re-write by authors of said qt applications.

Because that's an outright stupid and horrible idea. What next? A configuration merge engine which asks the user in toolkit-independent manner how differences in two supposedly simultaneously managed config backends should be merged?
