In the spirit of being helpful, I offer this query.  I can't tell (based
on my lack of use of the review winder) whether any of the requests are
contradictory such that making one possible will make another impossible.
Which leads to my query--is there any easy way to make a default for each
of these matters, but allow people to mix and match (and save their
preferred version)?

Second question: at the same time as a default was produced, could it
be possible to have several pre-packaged versions, say a 7.0 review window
default that one could invoke to get all the features of that version, as
opposed to a 6.0 version, and so on?

Or, are either or both of these just too much programming?

Just a query.

Take care.
Sam
