document.persist doesn't really do anything that complicated or magic.  
I think one could cause it to be persisted to the same place or a 
similarly reliable place without a massive amount of effort by forcing 
the information in at document initialization time and updating it when 
customization ends.  (Since we intentionally forget our session store 
when we think we might have crashed, it's not a good place to store 
settings that should have any degree of permanence...)
