If Wing is installed centrally for all the users in the group, then a preferences
file copied into the installation directory can be used for some shared prefs if
the group delimiter is changed from [user-preferences] to [global-preferences].
Wing reads that, then ~/.wingide3/preferences, and then any prefs file given
on the command line with the --prefs-file arg (where [user-preferences] needs
to be replaced with [extra-preferences]).
