Well, one of the things that always hindered its adoption is the fact 
that it has X in its name and people always get scarred by that (plus 
given the responses so far confused :) ).

We have classes implementing it. Fredrik had a KDE 3 editor that allows 
you to play with settings exported via it. I have one for Qt 4. But to 
be honest we're not really using it for anything. 

Sharing some configuration options - problem XSETTINGS tries to address 
- is definitely a real problem. So since currently we don't have a 
common configuration framework if there's a push I could add support 
for it, assuming we can come up with a good list of things that should 
be shared.
