(24.08) Impress Remote Update

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately my bluetooth dongle didn't materialise, so instead I 
worked on storage of authenticated servers:

I'm still figuring out how settings storage in LO works -- I spent the 
large part of the day getting the storage working -- it also took quite 
some time to realise that the RuntimeException I was getting trying to 
acces the new Setting I'd created was due to the database not being 
update (which a make dev-install finally fixed). I can now successfully 
get an editable object, and am now working on actually reading/writing 
the data to it.

To store the list I'm using a set of a new type called 
"AuthorisedRemote" with two fields: name and pin. The Set is returned as 
an XNameAccess -- i.e. each entry already has a name. Is there a valid 
way of having a set of strings (using xs:string in the .xcs file fails), 
or should I just remove the name field from the AuthorisedRemote?

For the moment I'm storing authorised remotes in 
officecfg::Office::Impress::Misc::AuthorisedRemotes, is this an 
appropriate place, or should I move it elsewhere?



Ps. I'm away at my grandparents next week, so I won't be able to work on 
bluetooth on windows as I haven't set up my laptop for building on 
windows (and hadn't bothered moving windows onto my new ssd) -- however 
I have plenty of other things to get on with. (Internet can also be 
sketchy there as I'm on 3G and reception is poor -- if all else fails 
I'll use an internet cafe to push to git / do emails in the evenings.)
