WHOA THERE TONTO! I thought the whole idea to properties was  
persistence?? That means that I cannot save, for instance, the  
database settings a user entered? I have to create an external file  
for all of that? And so many card and object properties in my app  
DEPEND on persistence through runtime. This means that I have to put a  
kabosh on the whole project!

Say it ain't so Sam!
