Hopefully I'm not being too simplistic, but

Will there be any other profile managment as part of the UI?  Renaming  
profiles?  Deleting profiles?

Now, think about a "future" scenario:  the user has three profiles  
saved, and creates a new one.  I assume you have to read in the current  
file (or have already done so) and take those three, add the new one,  
and write out four to the rc file.  Therefore I assume you already have  
some way of saving an rc file including one or more profiles that have  
not just been used.

Perhaps if there are no profiles saved in the local file (or there is  
no local file) then you automatically read in the sample profiles and  
save them, whether or not either of them was actually used.

You could also have a button somewhere to "Reload all sample profiles"

I don't think any of this actually solves the problem, but hopefully it  
might give you something to chew on.
