storage location of source code formatter settings

today, the custom source code formatter settings are stored in the file 
sessionrc, specifically for each session. Assuming that each project has its 
own coding style, this behaviour seems reasonable.

However, if I want to define my favourite source code formatting style and 
apply it to several projects, this implementation is a bit questionable. I'd 
like to see my custom formatting style in any project and select it if I want 
to. This isn't possible at the moment.
Wouldn't it be better to store the available formatting styles in a global 
configuration file and let just the selection be project-specific? I think 
this would be more flexible.
