Please don't release hdspmixer without having the preset load/restore
issue sorted out.
The ondisk structure contained no meta information, so it's already hard
enough to tell which version of hdspmixer created a given preset file.
Having more officially released versions available complicates things.
I've recently introduced a magic header for the new ondisk structure,
but it isn't stable, yet.
While I think it's perfectly acceptable to have unstable ondisk
structures during development, I would like to have a stable format
- no magic: old (pre v1.0.24 format or broken v1.0.24.(.1))
- v1 style: fixed format, maybe will become v220.127.116.11
- v2 style: only single card instead of three cards in one preset file
Just my €0.02
