Feature Request:
capability to import and export SuperAbbrev sets in XML (or some other human-editable format).

- transfer sets from one system to another
- backup in case of corruption, errors, etc.
- global definition edits, e.g. using jEdit search & replace on multiple terms

All the cases are valid.

How is one to share abbreviations with colleagues and internets?

something simpler than xml could be better.. like velocity templates with ##template= ... like:

##name=func mode=javascript
function $1($2){

I absolutely agree with that, so +1 also for me.

Would INI format be good enough?
The abbreviations can be specified as the key of each property in the INI file, while the expansion would be the value.
I think INI file suits better than XML here.

Concur with INI format

OK with ini files (simple enough to be edit by everyone)
Is it possible to keep the tabulations and line wrap in this case ?
Can you please give a template example ?
