I would actually like to surface the functionality which makes "partial"
imports easy.  My CMFFolderExport product demos this for "content space"
folders:

  http://palladion.com/home/tseaver/software/CMFFolderExport

The product uses the registered GS handlers to drive views for exporting
/ importing a folder's contents as a tarball.

I think it would be possible to write new ZMI views for the tools which
have GS profile support to allow exporting / importing their
configurations as well.  TypeInformation and DCWorkflow objects could
benefit from this as well.
