 ISTR I suggested you take a look at update-gconf-defaults, which does
 precisely this: merge defaults provided by individual packages into a
 defaults GConf source which is at the right place in the default GConf
 path (/etc/gconf/2/path).

 To adhere to the FHS, the defaults are below /usr/share/gconf/defaults,
 and the db under /var/lib/gconf.
