As a corollary to that I think we should look at the profile switch 
add-on also from the same author.  It removes the need for the arcane 
command line switches to change or open the profile manager or another 
profile.  Outlook express had this functionality 20 years ago and users 
expect user interface wizards to get things done,  not command line 
arguments.  Regardless of how useful and powerful they can be.

With regard to the import export tools,  my understanding is they are 
prone to timeouts when processing large folders.  I have never looked, 
but I assume loops in there somewhere.
