Just an additional note. If you save state in your application by
saving the program stack each time the user quits be aware that this
will not work on NT/2000/XP and OS X systems where the user does not
have administrative privileges.
What Revolution probably needs are some functions for getting/setting
preferences that would do the right thing on each platform (Registry on
Windows, pList on Mac, etc.). You of course can roll your own that
just stores preferences in a stack file that you save in a folder that
all users can write to.
