Directory Import/Export of categories and tags


We are trying to build up several separate directories, each with the same set of basic categories/tags, across a wordpress multisite, and are looking for a way to streamline this by creating a set of categories/tags that can be imported directly into the plugin without having to manually enter them for each site. Initially the directory will be empty when we are doing the import.

We have searched around for a solution for this, but the only examples we can find relate to import/export for the CustomPress plugin, which does not appear to contain the data we need to import, just a general description of the taxonomies.

We have also looked at the wordpress tools available for this, and none of them appear to integrate with the Directory plugin. Is there any script or method for importing a single bulk of categories.
