A ZODB level import/export like we have in Zope 2 could be made to work, 
I imagine. Would indeed be a nice feature. We need to think through the 
security implications. In Zope 2 the system goes through hoops to only 
allow import from a special 'import' directory on the filesystem, not 
directly from the web UI.

This is in part because Zope 2 allows you to import *code*, something 
that a typical Grok application won't let you. As long as the 
import/export is a manager function, especially if it can be turned off 
in deployment mode, we should be all right in offering it in a TTW UI.

We need someone to implement this though. :)
