How much "user state" do you want to keep in/for EPaati across the
sessions? I saw some versions and it is many interactive
contents/games loaded into on demand. If in fact, there is not much
differences in user perception between saving the entire project
precisely and just quit (or devise a new data format for it and it
only contains the last visited project name, etc), it'd be ok to go
with user proposal in Epaati (not in Etoys, though).
