The Joomla core as well as the core extensions between them have lots of configuration settings. If you add 3rd Party extensions to the mix, these run into hundreds. If the Joomla core provided an import/export options setting as 'infrastructure' to any extension using Joomla's way of storing options, i think it will benefit a lot of Site builders and admins. 

If you have ever uninstalled an extension for whatever reason and needed to install it again, you will know the pain of having to reconfigure the extension. Also if you are a site builder who builds sites regularly, then you will have your own way in which you setup Joomla and its various extensions. If you had a way to store your pet way of doing things, you will get a head start when you start setting up a new site by importing your stored settings. 

What do you think about this as a new feature for Joomla ? Do you think its worth the time to code it in ? Do comment and let me know your feedback !
