the current settings spi will recognize and instantiate only files with .settings extension. i propose a definition of a
new folder attribute "recognizeXML" which will instruct the convertors to process also .xml files in it.
Created attachment 74243 [details]
if there are no major objections, i'd like to integrate this issue tomorrow (nov 28th) because issue #153835 depends on it
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200811290201* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
