You can write a sysex file that can be written to the device.

Again I have to note though that this is just an example implementation 
of the sysex format that contains no checking. It would be nice if 
someone figured out the configuration format details, implemented 
valididy checking, wrote a nice GUI, and implemented direct read 
from/write to device functionality. But as I already mentioned, that 
someone isn't going to be me ;)
