This is a good change, see my comments on your patch.

That is odd, the library should not be exporting that function's symbol yet
(it is needing to be reworked).

This is intended. The system is intended to check the types expected value
and return failure if it doesn't match the actual value of a key. There is
work on going to get the type of key however.

There is also a simplebuxtonapi that exists for folks who are interesting
in using buxton as they used vconf (some parts are still being worked on
there so it is not quite ready).

If you have any further questions or comments please let me know.
