Project-local preferences are pretty much only useful in Etoys, where projects are the preferred unit of modification.

That's also why persistent preferences are necessary in Etoys, since the image is read-only and not modified. To make customizations, preferences need to be read at startup. I'd favor a preference directory with one file per preference, named after the preference.
