The defaults are set in /etc/gnome/defaults.list. This file is used in
GNOME session since there is a XDG_DATA_DIRS indirectly pointing to it
(set in a Xsession script).

reaches testing without the other impacted packages, it can stay buggy
for weeks, even months.

Good. We can probably let it migrate once epiphany and iceweasel have
been fixed; unless you want the configuration GUI, which means
gnome-control-center 3.x - and if you really want to tie glib2.0 with
it, I’ll let you deal with the RT fallback :)
