You may be able to do this by creating a command file with "set met x" and other
rollout settings and then start gnubg with the filename with a -commands
argument.  Not able to test it, and I know there are problems in this area, it
might work (or not - or just run the commands and exit...).

You could then have some shortcuts which start gnubg with different settings.
