I don't know what you're referring to, and I'd be surprised if we had one.

GConf, the GNOME configuration backend and API, supports different backend
implementations. You are 100% welcome to write one to your own specification
which may involved writing individual *nix-style or INI-style conf files for
each client, and monitoring them through fam or dnotify to catch manual
changes. I'm sure there are other ways of going about it too.

Writing a backend to these specifications is not even remotely a priority
for me, or the GConf developers, so unless you're willing to scratch your
own itch, you'll have to keep looking forward to it.
