What's wrong with the built-in Application Settings features in the .NET
Framework? I've never tested this with Mono, but it's been there since .NET
Framework 2.0 so I assume it would work fine. The .NET Framework handles
loading and saving the settings into an XML file, and gives strongly-typed
access to all the properties.
