No, we aren't using anything related to QSettings for the .johnny files at
the moment. Johnny has used .johnny file to save the last session
description. At the moment, it only contains the files and the format(it is
used to restore the label --format=XXX in the progress bar). It reads and
writes the files line by line similar to this :
while(!file.atdEnd()) {
if(line.contains("FORMAT=") {
//do XXX
This hasn't changed since 2012 except that before the TODOs task, it was
assuming that first line is file and second line is format. I added the
When I implemented session history, I kept the same logic so each session
has its own file .johnny to save its stuff.

If you want, we can changed that to read/save to .ini while using qsettings
stuff. But do we want to use groups, and have one file for
information about all sessions or one file per session like now ?
