By the way I'll be mostly offline until next Thursday, so don't be
surprised if I fail to reply to new comments right away.

Yes, IF you start gconfd and set the gconf key, or set the GTK_MODULES
environment variable. Both of those are sort of hacks, and the gconf
key dependency should be gone in gnome 2.17 (i.e. soon after the current
freeze lifts). The intention is that the desktop's session manager
(either gnome-session or KDE's session manager) will launch
at-spi-registryd if AT support is desired, and thus GOK will detect this
instead of checking gconf.
So the short answer is "yes, though you might need a small hack to
bootstrap things in the current version".
