BTW 2, Plone 5 is still also using CMFQuickInstaller, but that is going

I didn't have a look at the Plone 5 control panel, but as you describe
it, something similar would be quite useful in the portal_setup UI. But
the Import tab has already too many options for rare use cases. It might
be better to add a new tab for importing add-ons.
This sounds like a good idea. The ZMI has traditionally suffered from just
