Hi Russell -
Actually, 10.0.2 introduced the ability to create custom tables. The one limitation that they have is that the entities contained in them must be tied to a combination of Companies, Contacts, and/or Groups.
To solve the problem at hand, I can see two approaches. First, you could create a custom table, then link settings to the My Record of the users in the database. When a value is updated by one person, you would just want to populate it to all of the My Records in the database using your own code. Second, you can call ACTFM.SupplementalFileManager.Workgroup to get the path to the [database name]-database files folder for a particular database. You could create a file in there that is accessable to all users yet isn't actually linked to any particular record. The major caveat here is that a sync environment would be difficult to support, where using the custom tables approach would work fairly well in a sync environment.
