Does /Users/Shared still exist? Shouldn't that be usable for shared 
preferences? If this still exists and is useable as in the past, a 
single preferences stack in this location could be used to store 
individual personal preferences for multiple users if users are logging 
into the app, using a conditional, and global prefs if needed.
