I think the reason was that there are a number of things that are configured by
chameleon like:

web metadata
keymap object
reference object
scalebar object
output format

there are a lot of things that chameleon configures for the user based on
widgets.  Most widgets try to be intelligent and not do all the processing and
updating except the first time.

The code is not structured such that we could set a flag to cause everything to
re-initialize nor is it a simple task to identify all the things chameleon may
have changed on the user's behalf.

An enhancement would be to recode all widgets to test for an 'initialize' flag
but that seems like a huge amount of work :(

What would be easier would be a method of extracting all metadata from an object
and passing it to another object.  This must be available at some level since
you can clone most objects.  Can you clone metadata?
