Sorry for the late reply. I have been offline a lot last month, so
cleaning out my email log now.

Not sure this is the solution we are looking for. In general I would
say that if you want to use this to customize the layout of the
notebook this is a hack that might have unwanted side effects.
Probably cleaner to have a subclass of the file storage class for such

On the other hand we could make layout more dynamic based on the
config file if we identify there is a limited number of variations
people might be interested in.
