[Qgis-developer] Buffering/caching/auto-saving vector styles

Hi All,
Sorry about the repeat, but Nathan felt I was hijacking his thread. 

If there are going to be modifications done to styling, please consider 
adding a feature whereby the various styles chosen or experimented with, 
are auto-saved for that mapsheet (perhaps in your project files).
I find when editing, edge-matching or QAing various mapsheets, I want to 
easily switch between styles - I might choose "single symbol" for the 
map I am editing, but "rule-based" for the adjoining maps. Rule based 
choices would change depending on scenarios, so it does not make sense 
to save a rule-based set (I could end up with too many).
So, what I am seeking is the ability to switch between the 5 style 
categories, and not lose the ones I may have set up a few minutes ago. 
If I close QGIS, and come back to the project later, I would like to see 
the last styles I had set up for a mapsheet, still be available when I 
click through the style options.

Hope I'm making myself clear.
Thanks & regards,
