How do I enable an addon for all but one file in Blender 2.7b?

A more tangible way to express my query would be that if I have 4 Blender (.blend) files, A, B, C, and D, then how do I enable an addon for A, B, and C only but then not for D?

Basically, how do I make the User-Preferences for one file different from the one in others without re-modifying them (the User-Preferences) again every single time on startup? (And no, I do not mean to "save different startup files". Explaining one last time: You know how there is a button which saves the user's prefs for all Blender files? Well, how do I save them for all but one file?)

  • $\begingroup$ @TheCatalyst Any addon, it doesn't matter which one. $\endgroup$ – Arihan Sharma May 10 at 19:45
  • $\begingroup$ It is what different startup files are meant for. You technically could open that one file first, then open new Blender session, save new user prefs wit addon enabled and then open other files but that would be for one session only. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak May 10 at 19:52
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, I want for all sessions that I use in a particular file. $\endgroup$ – Arihan Sharma May 14 at 1:15
