For Directory Plugin, Way to bulk import listings, like batch create?

I have installed the directory plugin, and added some listings, and see it takes time. I realize people can add their own listings.

However, is there a way to bulk import a list of say businesses, or other items?

Can't believe WPMU forums don't have some way of notifying forum members of response to posts.

Is this still the case? If so, seems this could be a plugin.
