   That would be mostly inefficient since opening and closing dialogs and 
interacting with them is simple a means to get from a data file to a Kst 
session.  Programatically there is a much faster way to get from data to Kst 
session, and we can recreate it easily from the XML.

   That doesn't mean you have to save it and run it through an external 
application...  It could be implemented as a Kst extension even, dumping out 
a .js from Kst's internal object structure.
