An excellent technique which will find its way to my code very soon :)

My variation was to have a human-readable config file, but keep the actual data in a hash written out by Storable. At startup the program checked the dates of the two files and re-parsed the config file if needed. I hadn't thought of using it to maintain user state though, nice job.

    ...or do both in one shot with Data::Dumper. Doing this prevented me from having to define a human-readable configuration-file syntax. Though I do process the Data::Dumper output slightly.
