I'll confirm:  What your wrote is a good summary of the situation.  Thanks!

In terms of "complete all this":  GS-mag supports another route for 
controlling its settings, namely, GConf.  Furthermore, that part of the 
code is in the process of being converted to GSettings [1].  The idea is 
that by changing a user's session wide magnification preferences via 
GSettings live-updates the magnifier's settings.  A concrete example is 
setting the mouse tracking preference in Orca's magnifier when running 
gs-mag.  In this case, Orca uses GConf to change the user's magnifier 
mouse tracking desktop preferences.  GS-mag "hears" that change and 
responds appropriately.

A couple of related issues/tasks are that Orca's preferences [2] , and 
desktop a11y preferences [3] are also migrating to the GSettings solution.

and magnification should be general desktop preferences [Orca])
