I was afraid that the list structure was opaque to gsettings. That does
make it harder to start down that path, but isn't really a surprise.

The list format looks python friendly. I was a bit worried about writing
a script to use to process the changes in python for kickstart files,
but given that livecd-creator and anaconda both need python, it seems
pretty safe to assume python will be available where I need it.

Thanks for the response.
