MoveableType importer

The MoveableType importer has been enhanced to also support importing comments and trackbacks, and has a generally more flexible approach at parsing, which I have verified working with MoveableType 3.17. Support for that was committed to the 0.9 trunk today. You can also use it in conjunction with Serendipty 0.8.x by downloading and storing that in your include/admin/importers/ directory, overwriting the old importer.

A question: Is there a need for importing the MT-MySQL database? This would also make it possible to import authors and categories and generally be easier to handle than the current mt.dat file import. On the other hand, the current importer does the job and maybe the MT-MySQL storage method isn't that common?
