GConf diff tool

Somebody on desktop-devel-list asked for a “gconf-diff” which should tell them the settings they have in gconf that are different to the defaults.

So I wrote it, you can get it in the list archives or by following this link: gconf-diff.py.

As well as giving the keys that are different it also gives keys without a matching schema. I think this should also be helpful with troubleshooting upgrades and the like.

    Being that someone, I just want to say thank you 🙂

    This will probably be even more valuable when schemas are required to store stuff in GConf.
