This would require a custom file dialog, which sounds like trouble.
Perhaps it could just be a tool under File -> Export -> User Settings,
which can export a <schematic>.kuo (Kicad User Options) file. This
could be exported when someone is seeking support and the support
person wants to run the same user settings.

The support persons installation of KiCad will load the schematic, and
look for a <schematic>.kuo file, overriding the default user options
with the <schematic>.kuo options.
