Hey Edward,

Since I know your checking your mail right now, I thought I'd throw a 
question at you.  I'm trying to get your new preferences changes to work 
in kepler.  After updating to your changes, kepler now refuses to load 
giving a NullPointerException at line 221 of VergilPreferences.  I think 
the reason is that the preferences object is not being intialized 
properly.  I added a <property name="LocalPreferences" 
class="ptolemy.vergil.VergilPreferences"/> line to the kepler 
configuration.xml file but that doesn't seem to fix the problem.  Is 
there another file that I'm missing?
