Lots of great suggestions.  You can follow the action in where the dialog is 
being improved.

Also, someone mentioned using the account dialog to import. To the 
extent that import is supported and works (several types of import where 
disabled in the past few years), this happens today on startup for new 
users with a new profile. Import is not done through the new account dialog.
