Gwen and I are building a preference system for gst.
There is a couple of idea we've wanted to propose you.

1)First question is wether to use a XML, ini .. file or a file containing plain 
smalltalk code.

2) If we chose to have a smalltlalk file acting like a ".emacs"  what kind of 
"dsl" do you want to see
Proposition 1: a verbose but simple one
PrefConfiguration from: {
        PrefGroup name: 'GTK' with: {
        PrefSection name: 'font' with: {
            PrefValue name: 'size' value: 12.
            PrefValue name: 'style' value: 'italic'
        PrefSection name: 'color' with: {
            PrefSection name: 'windows'  with: {
                PrefColorValue name: 'background' value: 'EDE9E3'.

Proposition 2: Less but more customizable one:
PrefConfiguration from: {
      'GTK' -> {
           'font' -> {
                'size' -> 12.
                'style' -> 'italic'
        'color' -> {
            'windows'  -> {
                'background' -> 'EDE9E3'.

Or other idea.

Thanks for your comment or remark.
