Description

Feature request: Please provide a method of importing or exporting OTR private keys to or from a plaintext file.

This may be useful to see what file formats other clients use:

OTR can be problematic (multiple retransmissions of undecryptable messages) when someone is signed in with multiple OTR-capable clients, especially when they are set to automatically start/refresh OTR sessions. (typical case: leaving oneself logged in at home and going to work, with no remote access to the home system) The unpleasant workaround is to use the same key everywhere.
