I would suggest to make it as in the Linux if this is not more complicated
than via registry.
Arguments: the configuration will be in the same manner as everything rest
otherwise configuration via registry
would make the configuration process dissimilar.

after several requests, we should add the following point to the todo-list:

    Implementation of a static configuration. Either as file as in the
    Linux version Xfree86 or via the Windows registry.

    The configuration should contain these points:
    - Dimension and location of the window
    - Fontpath configuration
    - XKB configuration
    - Other options (3 Button emulation,...)

    The preferred format of the configuration file is the format of
    XF86Config used by other XFree86 X-servers. 
    If a reuse of the configfile reader of XFree86 is not possible/
    _very_ complicated I would not mind if we use a different format.

    The registry variant would require a configuration program which 
    allows the user to adjust these values.
