export_settings and import_settings

The export_settings and import_settings are CLI features that allow you to export/import the entire or partial (subtree or the configuration of a given path) configuration in a text format. The input and output can be a file or standard input/output (copy/paste).  It can be used at the root of the configuration menus to get all of the settings, or at a specific level (i.e. 'cd /settings/network_connections' first) to get a more limited set.  If you use the --file option, it will write to the home directory of the user you are logged in as.
