In the particular case that has been discussed of storing where the last
position of a dialog was, I can see that storing this in a user-editable
text file isn't that nice, and you don't want to rewrite the file. So
the registry is OK for that. Just about every other parameter belongs in
a text file so it can be edited nicely ... good config tools should be
able to change the file if neccessary. Anyone think anything else needs
to go in the registry?
The appropriate place to put X configuration information already exists.
Why would we break this?
