Firstly: no, that isn't implemented yet. You're thinking of the other
options you added to the GUI at the same time, the "Import Default
Studio" and "Import Studio from File..." options on the Studio menu,
which I wired up a few months ago. The configuration option itself
has never been used for anything yet.
Secondly, isn't that a slightly different problem? Or in fact, isn't
that a situation in which Hans's problem is actually more likely to
occur, not less? If you think about it, each instrument has (well,
optionally anyway) program and bank numbers associated with it, and
they're just numbers -- the file records the number values regardless
of whether the programs are actually configured in the studio or not.
Load a file and then load a different studio over the top, and you
make it even more likely that the numbers stored in the file will
correspond with the wrong programs in the new studio, or worse, won't
correspond with any existing programs at all.
