I was thinking we could just have one settings package, but I think we
would end up with ghost sessions (sessions called by the other DEs that
don't work). What would work though, is to combine the two... a meta with
settings or settings with lots of depends. (both are the same thing looked
at from a different POV policy may make one ok and the other not?) Or the
settings could all be in one file with the one file that creates the
session in the meta. That way all the artwork/audio settings/tweaks/etc
could be in one package as one maintenance problem. I am just thinking
that having a number of settings packages could be confusing.
