I doubt that we can do this in the Right Way before the next release.
Saving these preferences should be done by the core through a well-
defined interface.  That's why I added a dependency on bug #101604,
which tracks the changes to the PDB and plug-in API.

this has got to be optional, i do not want plug-ins keeping settings accross sessions, at the moment they keep settings during a session and that's fine for me, but when i start up i expect the defaults personally.

This is something that can be done easily.  In fact, I have just done
it.  I have increased the default quality to 85%, which seems to be
a better default for most (?) users.  I have just committed this
tiny change to CVS.  This should take care of the most annoying part
of this problem, while the bigger issues can be taken care of later.
