I use gimp as a sprite editor for my FF6 rom-hack, and as such usually set the grid to visible and 16x24 pixels in size.

Is there a way to set persistent settings for the GIMP grid?
I have found no gui settings that allow for it, and exploring the .gimp folder yields nothing.

In specific I should like
1. For the grid to be always visible by default
2. For the grid to have a certain size by default.
