I've meant the idea how to save configuration where and your solution.
We could learn something about where to save configuration for other clients 
as well. We should try to save our discussed knowledge as good as possible.

IMO design criteria for such a configuration place would be
that some client would want to have several configuration and also
there are a lot of configuration values that should be the same across clients 
of same or different type.
