I'd suggest that there are two separate cases here. In the first case, 
near the start of a program you decide whether there is a preexisting 
.ini file, create it if not, and if necessary update it to contain e.g. 
the default name of a backend server. In the second case, at the the end 
of a program run you save the current session's state.
