I don't see much point in storing the conf file anywhere but in either the game's folder or in a data base of all games. I would not mind if it stored one in both, but would want any shortcuts the frontend creates to use the one in game's folder. It might be nice if the GUI could scan a game's folder for an existing conf file when setting up a new profile, even if the user had to manually select it. This would simplify setting up all the games that I have already manually created conf files and shortcuts for. It could come in handy with new versions of DOSBox when the dosbox.conf changes.
Also, I have a large store of game icons, so it would be nice if you could specify an icon cache that the frontend would default to when selecting an icon for the shortcuts.
