An implementation of LoadSettingsFromStorage needs to obtain access to the VSPackage it supports so that it can validate the retrieved data and update the state of the VSPackage..

This method is called by the Visual Studio environment when a VSPackage is initialized, or when a user chooses the Import/Export Settings command on the Tools menu to save the Visual Studio state.

For Visual Studio settings export operations, this method is called prior to SaveSettingsToXml to load VSPackage from local storage (typically the registry) to ensure that the correct VSPackage state is called.
