While this wouldn’t protect against “rogue” apps who want to trash things, would using the existing mechanism but using the Linux locking primitives (which are co-operative and not proscriptive)  to serialize access to the underlying files/directories be an option?

One option would be to write a backend that uses one of the various configuration systems in Unix that use a separate process to arbitrate access to the information.

Perhaps you can use dconf.

Since the registry lives in mscorlib, and this would bring a number of dependencies , I recommend to make this a loadable plugin.
