I completely agree, but is there some standard-ish layout that most users 
have? It may make sense to support migrating a very commonly used 
configuration, or group of options, if it's not too difficult, while letting 
users know that it can't be supported for other configurations.

e.g. it's probably better to be able to migrate at the very least accounts and 
passwords instead of the font for every possible widget view KMail has.
