Our Open Source
announcement is inspiring, if buzzword-enabled. Open
source all the way up the stack. I believe this is unique to Red Hat.

Discovered that the replacement gconf text files backend I wrote early
2002 runs faster and has half the memory usage of the original gconf
backend. So we can save a few megs and a fair bit of CPU by just
rearranging gconf/backends/Makefile.am. Should be a totally
transparent change to users. Feeling kind of silly for doing all the
work a year ago yet not reaping any benefits until GNOME 2.6.
