Allow user to backup and restore settings to/from a file. This allows uses same settings on different machines.

When settings were stored in gconf dir, it was easy to copy files. Now I could not even find where the settings are stored, so I guess we need export/import :)

@aurelijusrozenas It's understood that there will be a default path for these files, as .config in user home folder. If you want to put in a different path, remember this place should be your responsibility. P.S .: gconf dir isn1t easy to copy AND restore files in general. Thanks for comment!

dconf dump/load are indeed easy to use although requiring to remember the location, command and Guake settings path, so it's worth to quickly add a backup/restore feature.
