This was bounced around on the Loci list in yonder days gone past, but I
haven't heard from Jarl or Jean-Marc.  Basically, there were many shrills on
the other list about using anything that resembled the M$ regi$try.

Also, I will continue to stress that we don't want a dependency on a desktop
system for the CORE of Piper.  I hope that Piper can be installed, configured
and ran without the REQUIREMENT of a GUI.  Using GConf for the Gnome UI
(Pied/Piper) is fine with me, just not for everything else.
