True, this is a drawback of the object configuration method,
as I have already answered Alec.

I think it can be worked around in a reasonable way, though:
If it is a folder tree I have admin rights, I could create a subfolder
for myself to attach my personal configuration to the folder.
For other uses I can just use a different configuration folder
which is personal to save additional configuration for this folder.
As there will be several places for configuration with most applications 
anyway, I think this can be handled fine.
