Well, when I talk about a KTweakUI, I mean something on the lines of the 
TweakUI created by the Windows Shell Teams.  TweakUI wasn't a gconftool, it 
was instead an application that would tweak options that were available to 
advanced Windows users but were not exposed through the normal GUIs.

I would oppose something like making a kregedit or kconftool the method that 
people have to use to set advanced options as well.

For that matter I don't think user levels are a great idea.  The best 
suggestion I've heard so far for adding an "Advanced" button was to have a 
"Infrequently used options" button or something to that effect.
