hmm... i think that the aggregate of all of the steps from the various 
profiles that have ever been imported should show up on the import screen, so 
it should be possible to select ones that were added by a specific extension 
profile.  but this doesn't help, of course, when you only want to re-import 
the portal types step from an extension profile.

so you're right, the UI is missing a piece.  two pieces, actually.  on the 
'profiles' tab, there should be another button, "load import steps", which 
will register the steps w/o actually running them.  (importing a profile does 
this for you.)  then the import and export tabs can have a dropdown that lets 
you choose from any profiles that have had the steps loaded.

i won't be able to get to that until next week, unfortunately.  anyone else?
