Target Milestone: M15
Move this to M15 for evaluation.
Might I be so bold as to suggest putting this in an earlier milestone. After all
it might be easier for people to test Mozilla if they can import their bookmarks
straight in from Netscape.

I don't know about Win32, but on *nix, Netscape and Mozilla use the same HTML
layout for the bookmark file -- how difficult is it to copy the
Netscape\Profiles\Me\bookmark.htm file into the Mozilla profile folder?
Copying the file wouldn't be hard, but it would mean restarting Mozilla. The 
whole point of the Open Bookmarks command is to be able to change bookmark files 
on the fly. Import Bookmarks is a completely different thing, it actually adds 
the bookmarks from tbe selected file into your own bookmarks file.
Move to M16 for now ...
