The global preference file is just what I needed. Thanks!

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
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]).
