I have a few ideas for ActionScripts that would require settings to be stored in an xml file. Now my question is this. Should I/we:

1. Just append then into the MXM.xml to minamize the number of xml files
2. Use an extra xml file named after the author ie, flattspott.xml
This would contain any setting that are used by any scripts flattspott
made specifically.
3. Have an standard xml file for all actionscripts to use ie, actionscripts.xml

The reason for this question, is cause in my EntryMaker script you have to add a little stuff to your MXM.xml and I wanted to get your thoughts on this. I'm not talking about the extra xml files like the Tetris.xml or even my NewsFeeds.xml. Just an xml file for other smaller things, like the section you need for the authorization code to allow overwiting in my EntryMaker script.

I'm thinking about going with number 3

Well, that's what the plug-and-play standard is all about.

I intend to support XAS, which are plain text files with scripts.... and XSM, which are Script modules, done as XML files with extra information pertaining to plug-and-play specific information.

The XSM scripts will have access to their data, which will include dialogs and such.
