It originally seemed to me that data-display would be a different
component. (Remember Sean's twisted.metrics, anyone?)  I guess you're
right that it would be handy to display it in the same web interface,
though... hmm...

You can introspect on the objects to save them to wherever :-).  I'm
sure that the registry can be contorted in order to save "arbitrary"
Python objects.

Well, the existing coil code can edit "offline" as well as "online"
configurations; it just takes an Application object and mutates it. 
Adding some buttons to the interface to save / load the app to a
particular file should be trivial.
