The settings manager. This object gathers up some global methods for managing the saved settings. This base class provides only a programmatic interface - it doesn't have a user interface.

Summary of Methods
Restore all of the settings. If an error occurs, we'll throw an exception:
- SettingsNotSupportedException - this is an older interpreter that doesn't support the "special files" feature, so we can't save or restore the default settings.
Retrieve the settings from the global settings file. This returns a SettingsFileData object that describes the file's contents. Note that if there simply isn't an existing settings file, we'll successfully return a SettingsFileData object with no data - the absence of a settings file isn't an error, but is merely equivalent to an empty settings file.
Save the current settings. This writes out the current settings to the global settings file.
On any error, the method throws an exception. Possible errors include:
- FileCreationException indicates that the settings file couldn't be opened for writing.
store the given SettingsFileData to the global settings file
