    + kill gconf integration (Bjoern)

                 + but they worked (Stephan)
            + gconf & KDE backends - for some specific config-items,
              getting data through the backends (Stephan)
                 + dconf-thing, is different: reading all config items from dconf
                   similar to Windows Registry reading.
            + but system settings are now in dconf (Michael)
                 + could do something similar.
            + LibreOffice: the only app that depends on GConf (Bjoern)
                 + only kept around for LibreOffice.
            + perhaps some obsolete proxy settings that Stephan has (Michael) ].

            + doesn't need to be focused one way or the other.
            + Samuel wants a tabbed context
            + Heiko likes a general toolbar-like thing with menu on top.

    + question - about removing paragraph IDs from XML-help files (Kendy)
        + Olivier - says they are used somehow during translations.
        + how are they used ? would like to remove if possible.

            + must be unique in XHP file in order to dis-ambiguate
              identical English paragraphs (Christian)
        + in the source-code, same problem - but not an issue (Kendy)
            + can we make it non-mandatory and only for the
              strings that need this - to make XML human-readable.
        + can use shorter IDs - no problem (Andras)
            + just tweak the l10ntools as well (Miklos)
