How can i set system defaults for gnome?

Hi everyone, hope somebody can help me.
I have gnome 2.4 on debian machine, and several inexperienced people have accounts on it.
I sometimes find a missing service definition or application association, or i simply think a different default would be better for my users.
Just as an example, suppose I want to change default action for mp3s to 'xmms --enqueue'. Or I want to add a menu entry in Application menu.
I know how to handle this on a per-user basis, and i know i can have a script to diff my .gnome and patch other users', still this is not 'the debian way'
Where can I change system-wide gnome behaviour?

Thanks in advance to everybody.
