From a plugin I can read and write stuff to the preference file.
Which scheme should I write my settings into? (I currently create
one for my plugin and maintain my settings in it, thus I don't have to
worry about my option names corresponding to AbiWord's, nor do
I have to change the currently selected scheme to access the values.)
I want to use the preference file, as I believe this will allow the
plugin to store information in a cross platform manner (that is, without
extra platform specific logic for where to place a configuration file
or using platform specific features such as the registry on Windows).
What I am not sure of is mostly, should I
a) not be writing anything to the preference file or
b) using some other means than a prefsScheme or
c) write my settings to a _plugin_ Scheme using option names
prefixed with the plugin name (ie a scheme for all plugins to share) or
d) what I do now, unique plugin specific scheme or
e) something else?
