But most of the settings will be defaults, and the actual settings 
should be stored with the appointment/todo item, no?  I guess there's 
a tradeoff.  Do we waste more memory storing style information once 
for each possible category, or once for each appointment?  It 
obviously depends on the number of appointments and categories...  I 
suppose that at least until the category database gets large, your 
choice is the better of the two.

So it's off to the XML documentation for me...
