Our RC files are starting to get quite messy and I'd like to clean them up.
The problem is I don't want to have lots of migration code kicking around. I
could write a kconf_update script where needed, so here's what I propose.
Please tell me if anything actually needs to be migrated.
We presently hvae:
kstautosaverc: There is no point in this at all. It should go through
KstSettings, and should be saved as a subgroup in kstrc. Do we need a
migration script here? I don't think so....
kstextensionsrc: This needs to exist so that extensions don't clobber Kst
settings, and to keep kstrc small.
kstdatarc: Ditto above. This is for data sources only.
kstrc: Lots of problems here:
1) passwords are not even obscured. At least base64 them. We could also use
2) [Kst] is full of things that don't belong there. We need to regroup. This
i) Email settings - should go to an [EMail] group and drop the "EMail "
prefix on keys
ii) Grid lines - should go to a [Grid Lines] group I guess, or is this
something that really belongs in the .kst files instead?
iii) X Axis display/interpret/etc - Should go to a new group too?
