Again, I don't think we need to have multiple fixes to solve the same
underlying problem: that the config is stored as binary in the config sector.

If we only switch to having most configs in a plain text-based .cfg file (as
we've planned for years) I don't that there is a problem we need to fix.

I fully agree. I'm hoping my upcoming script will be able to gerenate a .cfg
file for each .wps file, as a start to a better "theme" approach.

Again, I don't think this is the correct fix for the reset problem.
