Indeed, I got few questions how to import text files, because people didn't 
find it there.

It is not on separate tab, because we have enough tabs now ;-). Export/Import 
name is long, it would b almost same. Even current layout won't fit on 800 
pixels..... If you will find one (short) word for Export/Import tab....

Better would be to move Empty and Drop links (they are not used too much, and 
I see no reason why to have separate tabs for them) on Operations tab and add 
Import tab. How about that?
