yes, but the idea is to have default one in the official build...

Actually I was thinking a little bit more about this. CFG files are
indeed more suitable for packaging WPS because its not only WPS
file name that we need but also font name and may be status
bar setting (as well as this would solve RWPS problem). So the idea
is to call this CFG file a "theme" and store it in a special
dir (may be in WPS folder) so that user can quickly load it.
There can be a default.theme file that gets loaded on first run or
when settings are reset.

Anton.
