Hi all,

good news, we figured out gsettings schema overrides. I think this will 
work without the need to deploy stupid binary dconf blob. Bernhard is 
currently testing with cinnamon.

This should also be highly interesting for sonar profiles, they could 
make extensive use of it.

Phil, the desktop items mechanism is provided by the little live skel 
Its basically a script in /usr/bin and a desktop launcher in autostart 
that calls the script.
Should work with sonar too, my idea was to probably feed the little 
script a list of items.
If item exists, it will be symlinked to the localized xdg Desktop 
Atm the items are statically defined in the script.
