I'm actually thinking about to make this OS independent, by creating a
'save QSettings' as file option. Then with a command line option you
would be able to (just before reading the QSettings) actually read/write
this settings file back into user settings. Thereby making it possible
to for example transfer a certain setup across a class room (as long as
the plugins are available in .qgis2 off cours).

Would this work? Or do I miss something?
