It has always bothered me that some widgets store state, rather than a 
default value.
This means that to ensure that a model opens in a consistent state, one must

version control system tells them they have produced a conflict.  Why? 
e.g. they both moved the same slider, but to different values.

This is a very serious problem.  It is another reason, and a very good one, 
to change
