Nearly if not all of it is through GConf. While no graphical preferences
capplet or similar exists for it yet, the keys are listed in detail in
gconf-editor and modifying them gets you the results you need/want.

That configurability comes at the cost of a disastrous UI and many cases
of Not-Invented-Here syndrome (using flat files for storage instead of
GConf, using its own themes instead of those of Metacity/Cairo/GTK, et.
al). That, and the fact that the people of Beryl is purportedly much
less strict about the quality and consistency of code accepted. 

I've got three words for that: No thank you.
