SPREFS - Preferences for a user for an application

Uses SCFG to provide preferences for a given user for a given application. This keeps a global module variable PREFERENCES. This module uses the scfg-mult-get/set! functions for accessing its configuration files.

Configuration files will be stored in $HOME/.scm_settings. Filename: $HOME/.scm_settings/<application>.scfg. Where <application> is given with sprefs-new.

 >(sprefs-get 'a)
 Call sprefs-new first

 >(sprefs-new "my-application")

 >(sprefs-set! '(a b c) "abc")

 >(sprefs-get '(a b c))
 >(sprefs-get '(a b c d))
 >(sprefs-get '(a b c d) "HI")

 >(sprefs-cond-set!-get '(a b c d) "HI")
 >(sprefs-cond-set!-get '(a b c d) "HI" "OK!")
 >(sprefs-get '(a b c d) "HI")
