I did not do that integration myself since

a) I could not conceive of a way to handle the
   gmclient_config.sql tables generically
b) the way gmclient_config handles tables might lead to an
   arbitrary explosion of config item types
c) all of the data can be handled by the 'generic' tables in

However, I do ack that one looses some possibilities when
storing, say, font information in a generic string rather than
in a cfg_font_info table.

If anyone can think of a sensible, tasteful way of how to marry
the get()/set() genericity of with the data type
specifity of gmclient_config.sql I'd be most happy.
