the mail merge solution i've created works somehow in that way.
currently the configs are a sla-file-name.conf.json next to

when i (or somebody else) adds a gui, i expect the gui to be able to
read and write the config file.

any script can do the same, and if it makes sense to have global
configs, it can save the settings in

i think it's simpler to let each script manages this rather than adding
the values to the scribus own preferences.
(the configs can be specific to a project, a language or depend on
other specifics)
