Export and import for named sessions prefs

Acting on a request for an improvement by rodocop, I am making available a macro which will allow the user to export / import the prefs for sessions that have been saved to a name.
Requesting thread: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?4,120481

This should allow moving sessions between installations of K-Meleon.

The CarrySession macro can be found here:

Well...

It's not absolutely obvious, but I understand all limitations - and what really matter, it works! Beautiful!

Thanks once again!

Is there something that I should change to make the actions and results more obvious to the user?

The data that sessions reads is in the prefs.js file. To move a named session from one installation of KM to another, it is only necessary to move the data. In export mode Carrysession.kmm reads the data in saved (named) prefs and writes that data to an ini file. In import mode the data in the ini file read and user prefs created for KM. The user is offered a choice to use or omit a session if the same name is already in use on system.
