Saving GNOME settings

Here's a small tip I got from GNOME expert Pascal Terjan, and that I'm copying here because I don't trust my memory:

Want to inspect the settings of some GNOME application? Use gconf-editor.

Want to copy the settings of some GNOME app (like, say, metacity) from one desktop to another? Use the command-line tool gconftool, specifically the options --dump and --load. (The paths you need to feed to gconftool can be retrieved via gconf-editor.)
