i was looking into the preferences api in the jdk 1.4
documentation  and wonder how this could be done as simple as
possible in python. in short, preferences is a tree branch of
options you can store and load, just like ini files or registry settings.
i was thinking of an empty function:
def empty(): pass
and then use it to build complex tree of preferences:
pref = empty
pref.personalData = empty
pref.personalData.firstName = 'John'
pref.personalData.lastName = 'Cleese'
pref.windowSettings = empty
pref.windowSettings.windowA = empty
pref.windowSettings.windowA.x = 200
# and so on...
to store or load this pref object, just use the pickle mechanism.
my question is, is there a simpler, more beautiful, elegant way?
