I think it was previously suggested that it should appear at different lo-
cations depending on the stage of use. In most curcumstances, the
importer/s will be used once, at the start. Subsequently, this option
would just consume screen space, unnecessarily so.
I can't remember the previous thread on that topic quite so well. Yet,
among the possibilities was making the importers part of the installation
process. On the one hand, you want these to be visible and easily-accessi-
ble to new users. Then again, in order to avoid clutter, maybe it's worth
putting it under "Manage" and then, throughout installation, clearly tell
users something along the lines of:
"If you already have a blog, the next step to follow might be 'Import',
which can be found under the menu 'Manage' at the top." (or click >here<
to import your blog)
