Any application is overstatement IMO. For the application have a need to
save some parameters there should be a way to change them during application
runtime. This fact limit our scope to something with GUI (with rare
exclusions). These application indeed may need bidirectional access to
permanent storage for some date. But I would use Serialization library for
this purpose. Why would I need to go through extra hoops with parameters
