As a SiGeFi developing decision, we obligated us to keep the program
state between executions (hey, if I set the window this big, I want
the window this big next time!).

It was natural to us to save it in the user home directory, in a
".sigefi" file.

And we thought it was unpolite, at less, to put a pickled dictionary
in users home directory. That's how we finished keeping program state
in a .INI, :s.
