I would love if there were a way to import 100s of files at once into PT2 without using the "generic auto-import". My main reasons for wanting this are:
1) Auto-import seems to have import errors that don't show up during manual import
2) Auto-import has no status information so I can't guess how long it will take.
3) Auto-import seems to be slower, but that might just be related to #2.
I'm finding myself doing a lot of new databases, mass imports, and stuff due to PT3 being released. Trying to keep them synchronized during the transition period has turned into a bit of a part-time job.
