I need to move all my projects (probably in the range of 30-50) from one 
system to another.

I tried simply copying the directories over, but it wouldn't open that as a 
project.

So I used Export Project to Zip.

Problems:

1) It will only export the project you currently have selected.

2) It doesn't remember where you last exported a project to, so you have to 
browse to it every time.

For 30-50 projects this will take over an hour just to get them into Zip 
files.

Then I did the Import Project from Zip.  It basically has the same two 
problems.  You can only import one at a time and it can't remember where you 
last did the import from.  Another hour plus of time to do this.

Is this worth filing an Enhancement request for?

My other option would be that I use a source control system, but I would have 
to set that up and still be doing only a single project at a time.  I am 
trying to transfer class lab work and projects from one laptop to another.  
Using source control for them is really not a solution for them, because they 
don't get revised.
