It seems to me that glib2 is useful for many things, and settings is
just one of them, and upstream does not see dconf as part of glib, so I
would tend to avoid doing this.  Plus it depends on libxslt, vala and
dbus.  I guess another question is how many packages that use glib2 need
a settings backend.  If 90%, then maybe, but if only 50%, it seems best
