I do see how editing an ini or conf file could help in a situation as
you describe. Howver, on the other hand it is more simple to serialize
the settings and save them to a file or just send the settings to the
registry. Modern programming languages like C# .Net, Visual Basic
.Net, and Java all have fairly simple methods for serializing objects
which makes saving and restoring a program's state very straight
forward and easy. That's principly why I don't use an ini or conf file
