A diff won't help you much I'm afraid... Libxml2 seems to lack the no-
tion of the concept of newlines ;). That apart, gconf also includes
some kind of stamps (timestamps or something?) so you'll have to send
your entire .gconf dir if anyone is interested.

Or we create a tool that uses gconf or libxml2 to make a diff of the
2 dirs.
