I'll confirm:  What your wrote is a good summary of the situation.  Thanks!

In terms of "complete all this": GS-mag supports another route for controlling its settings, namely, GConf. Furthermore, that part of the code is in the process of being converted to GSettings [1]. The idea is that by changing a user's session wide magnification preferences via GSettings live-updates the magnifier's settings. A concrete example is setting the mouse tracking preference in Orca's magnifier when running gs-mag. In this case, Orca uses GConf to change the user's magnifier mouse tracking desktop preferences. GS-mag "hears" that change and responds appropriately.

A couple of related issues/tasks are that Orca's preferences [2] , and desktop a11y preferences [3] are also migrating to the GSettings solution.
