[Mono-dev] Approaches for storing Application and User Configuration

I'm new to MONO and am still figuring out best approaches for how to store
application and user config info using Mono 1.9.  There is plenty of info on
this topic in the archives but none relevant to Mono 1.9.  For example, I
would like to use the My.Mysettings feature in .NET 2.0.   It was unclear to
me whether or not this feature is supported in the latest builds of Mono. 
If so, where does Mono save the user.config file info?

As far as I can tell, Mono emulates the Windows Registry on other platforms. 
As long as I am only storing data specific to my app,  should I store them
in the registry and let Mono take care of it?  If I do this and deploy a new
version of my app, will Mono overwrite the registry entries from the
previous installation?

Many people, recommended using Nini for all app and user config.  If I have
fairly simple config info to store. Is this overkill for my needs?

I'd appreciate any suggestions people have on these topics.
