What you need is debug sessions, and they depend on the executable being
debugged. It doesn't make sense to use the same breakpoints, watches
etc. for more than one program, or two sets of these for the same

I think you can store the debug session settings in the plugin main and
only configuration file, with section names dependent on the full
executable name, for example it's md5 sum:

/home/build/projects/testing/geany -> [945b93c3fe68a0fe63ac6e8e528c59a5]

/home/build/source/fnatools/fnstofna ->

etc. Note that the projects sessions do not necessarily match the
debug sessions - for example, a project may produce several executable
files, and they will not share the same debugging session.
