Dear Victor,

Thanks for your first try to improve the preferences.
In fact, we rather planned to develop a preferences dialogue,
with tabs for the different option groups (plus explanations).
On the other hand, one global preferences file should be fine for the moment;
I do not think that we need the far-going kind of granularity that you propose.
That said: being able to save the preferences to some user-specified file
would probably be nice.

Best, --Joris
