Change settings.dat to settings.xml

Suggestion

Please change settings.dat to settings.xml or settings.ini.

Please write binary values as base64 strings.

Rationale

Simplify manual editing. Superusers find that valuable.

It's been reported that settings.dat can become corrupted. Because of the binary format, instructions for partial editing has been clouded and it has been suggested that all data in settings.dat is deleted. The least desirable data in settings.dat to delete is the lifetime traffic statistics reached from Help → Show statistics.

Thanks!
