Right. The other advantage is that the simple "pragma" (which we've 
already established isn't a pragma at all) is trivial to support. Here 
is an implementation for Pharo, taking all of six methods (it would have 
been three methods if the Settings framework had been structured a 
little different :-)

Oh, and as a free goodie you get the ability to browse the implementors 
of both, #systemsettings as well as 
#preference:category:description:type: if you're curious where and how 
these annotations are used.
