Include threaded comments support in import function

    Hi,

    I want to migrate my blog from a blog hosting service to my own WP installation. I already managed to export all of my approx. 1.700 articels and some 5.500 comments in a textfile (in MovableType format) and then import the whole stuff in my new WP 2.6.3 blog.

    However, my former blog provider featured threaded comments which WP currently does not. I understund that WP 2.7 actually (and finally) WILL support threaded comments and I'd like to suggest that the existing import filter(s) should be adjusted to support that feature!

    Currently, the different type of content are marked as follows in my export/import MovableType text file:

    A Posting:

    TITLE:
    ...

    A comment:

    COMMENT:
    ...

    An answer to a preceding comment:

    COMMENT:
    REPLY:
    ...

    I could chance this by editing the user accessible export skins if there is a different standard syntax which has to be meeted.

    It would be very appreciated if the comment threads could be imported without any loss of structure. Manual adaption would be a matter of months! :-(

    Thank you very much for considering my proposal.

    Greetings from Germany,
    Ralph
