Convert posts from an existing WPML multilingual site via WP Import/Export to a WPMS (Network) with Language Switcher so easily it feels like magic!

Please post questions, request for help to the WordPress plugin forum dedicated to it: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/WPML2WPMSLS.
Currently, if you have 100 posts translated into 3 languages, you would export all posts once, import that same .xml file into 3 sites and delete the 200 from each site which are not the corresponding language. Then, you would be able to run steps 7 and 8 of the usage instructions above. With an enhanced WordPress export feature built into this plugin you would be able to specify the language for export to filter files. In that same scenario, you would run 3 exports (100 posts each of unique language) and import each language-based export file into the new sites before running the same steps 11 thru 13 above.
WPML2WPMSLS welcomes friendly contributors wanting to lend a hand, be it in the form of code through SVN patches, user support, platform portability testing, security consulting, localization help, etc.
The [current] goal is to keep the plugin self-contained (ie: no 3rd-party lib) for easier security maintenance, while keeping the code clean and extensible. Recurring quality patch contributions will lead to commit privileges to the project source repository.
