Bug Description

Unity Settings Daemon / Unity Control Center currently depend on API from gnome-desktop that is marked as unstable. These APIs have been removed or significantly changed in newer versions of gnome-desktop. To allow gnome-desktop to be upgraded we will stop depending on these APIs by bringing the existing code into Unity Settings Daemon and using that from Unity Control Center.

This requires two unity-settings-daemon [1] and unity-control-center [2] to be updated.

Packages with these changes have been in the Ubuntu desktop PPA [3] since the 29th August with no problems detected.
