Do you mean a physical [[File:]] - Of course, using the relative file location will let you do it, with MaxSems warning.

Sorry, no, I meant 'page'.

Someone post a settings file -> Save as in a text file -> Load settings. :D You would like to skip step 2.

Well, the real reason is so that I don't have to email myself settings file back and forth between locations when I'm in the middle of a task.

This or a similar feature would be very useful. For example me and some other users maintain a list of regular expressions at Commons:File description page regular expressions (XML) and it would be really cool if the finds and replaces in it could automatically be loaded by all our bots at startup, kind of like what's done for typos.
