Comment 1 for bug 1197051

Thinking about how core apps make use of the LocalStorage QML plugin to
store settings, this bug might easily be solved in some of them when we
migrate to using the GSettings QML backend (lp:gsettings-qt) to store the
settings.

However, it will not cover all cases, as there are genuine use cases for
using a database (such as storing past calculations in the calculator app)

Cheers,
David.
