I think it shouldn't lose it's config switching from one version to
another in the registry, since there is no version specifics there.
The problem should arise when using Nut/OS for different archs. For
instance, I have a set of boards that use atmega and I'm now
developing boards with AVR32. To switch from one to another I have to
enter the settings dialog and change the compiler. I thought of having
a project file, that could store the compiler settings as well as
reference the board .conf file. Then I could have a project file for
atmega and one for AVR32 and switch from one to another just opening
the project file.

With that I could replace the current "Multiple configurations" that
nutconf has (not implemented in qnutconf yet) using a xml file per
project. This would take some effort to implement, I was thinking
about having that a little later on, after a release, so it's not
delayed too much.
