[Baypiggies] Zope: Upload from local machine

Just curious: Why doesn't the Zope import feature have an *Upload from 
local machine*?  It seems like a natural inverse of *Download to local 
machine*, and it would save the annoying extra step of uploading to the 
import directory.

    You can export Zope objects to a file in order to transfer them to a
    different Zope installation. You can either choose to download the
    export file to your local machine, or save it in the "var" directory
    of your Zope installation on the server.

    Export to
    	
    Download to local machine
    Save to file on server
      	
    XML format?

    	

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You may import Zope objects which have been previously exported to a
    file, by placing the file in the "import" directory of your Zope
    installation on the server. You should create the "import" directory
    in the root of your Zope installation if it does not yet exist.

    Note that by default, you will become the owner of the objects that
    you are importing. If you wish the imported objects to retain their
    existing ownership information, select "retain existing ownership
    information".
