That's an interesting idea.. It seems like prefs.js is updated right
away (or very soon) after something in about:config is modified, so I
would assume GM_setValue would trigger the same action of writing to
prefs.js. That file is located in the profile directory, and you would
probably want to look for a line somewhat like..

user_pref("greasemonkey...namespace...variable," "<the value>");

But that's how it works for now. Later versions of greasemonkey could
possibly use some other storage; although, I haven't heard anything
about doing that.
