Options Options

As I continue to make the XDI Viewer more usable I was building in an 'Options...' page. A place you can specify som preferences about the look and feel of the app. And as one does, I started asking myself.."Where shall I persist the options this time?". I could write them to a .properties file (plaintext or XML) I could send them to the registry.... But then I thought NO.. I'll save them into my XDI profile. I have to login to use the app anyway so I might as well just pull down my options from the service when I log in. Whenever I login, I get my options, no matter where I am. I like that :-)
