On this post: How can I configure Unity?

It mentions several options for Unity that need to be accessed through dconf-editor. I remember when I used Ubuntu Natty beta on Virtualbox, it was there in the repositories... But now I have it installed on my machine for real, and I can't find it in Synaptic! What's more, I looked on for it as well, and STILL found nothing!

Why was this pulled? Is this a bug? How would I report a bug like that? Etc., etc.

All in all, is there a way to modify these settings still, or will dconf-editor be back in the repositories soon?

The package name is actually dconf-tools
