The SaScreenPolicy interface enables SCOadmin applications to retain
per-user configurable variables across multiple invocations.
Values are stored in a common per-user file in a section reserved for
the individual application. All SCOadmin application values are
collected together in a single file avoiding unnecessary file system
pollution and providing the user with a central place for all preferences.
SaScreenPolicy is implemented using the Stanza files.
