[JDEV] IQ:Private / IQ:Public

I know many servers turn off both public and private storage, because 
these storage mechanisms do not map to well their backend data store 
(i.e. anything at all other than a database). It might be nice having 
some JEPs for this, but I don't know how useful it is when clients 
cannot rely on it being on all servers.

(An aside) It might be interesting if someone supported a Mac plist or 
.NET resx-style private storage for settings - basically key/value 
pairs. This could be mapped to a database rather well, and you could 
have a client just retrieve and modify their settings rather than 
everyone's. You could also subscribe to other concurrent client 
connection changes via Pub Sub :-)
