I like the idea!

I don't think its necessary to implement a generic mechanism for this.
Just go the simple way. If you need to store per-project data, just
create a file in the project directory. If you need to store it
per-user, create the file in the home config directory (available in
Runtime.Properties.ConfigDirectory). I would use the XmlSerializer to
load and save data.

It would be worth looking at how SharpDevelop does it, and see if we can
reuse the code.
