Yes, that is a good feature.

On Linux, you can manually copy these files:
[user]/.lazarus/editoroptions.xml
[user]/.lazarus/environmentoptions.xml

Make sure you already properly backup before manually copy/edit the files.

environmentoptions.xml contains the paths to fpc and the like.

So a simple copy may not always work.

EditorOptions should be fine
And many other of the XML too.
