Just to elaborate, I worked on IsolatedStorage as a weekend project to
get it to run an example I found in "Programming C#".

Which means:
  + You can actually create files with it
  + It really works!

  - No effort was paid to security
  - or disk space concerns
  - or anything else that would be needed for a actual completeness.

It's a simple way to create files for the individual user that aren't
visible by the user (they're stored ~/.mono/isolated-storage).  It
should work quite well for this, and should suffice for storing program
preferences and other related things.

Aside from permission support and implementing a fixed-size data store
(and how should that be configured?), it's pretty much feature
complete.  Or mostly complete, anyway.
