Split the content of ~/.wingpro7/preferences into two parts: portable and non-portable.
Considering that tweak out the favorite preferences for wing takes me some time, so I decide to use the ~/.wingpro7/preferences of the old computer for another computer on which wing is newly installed.
But the problem is that some entries in the ~/.wingpro7/preferences, say the
main.update-history is not portable till I really installed the corresponding updates on the target machine. So I want to suggest the following settings' method.
Split the settings for wing into two files, one for portable settings and the other not (so) portable, by this way, the user can directly use the portable preferences file for the newly installed wing on another computer.
