Is there a way to import multiple XML files simultaneously?

I was wondering if there was a way that multiple XML files could be imported into BeerSmith all at once.  I'm a big fan of Northern Brewer's kits, and someone was nice enough to convert all the kit recipes to XML and post them (http://www.mediafire.com/?weeqmmlkyj9).  The zip file has 132 files, and I would very much like to avoid importing them individually.  Or, is there a way to merge all the XML files into a single file, like the Recipe uploads?

Hi,
  No there is no automatic import of multiple XML files - its too bad the author did not put them all into one XML file.

  You could probably manually merge them but it would still be a bit painful as you need to have one set of <Recipes> tags surrounding the actual <Recipe> records, so you would have to load and manipulate the XML.

  If you can find the author he could easily export them all at once to either a BSM file or XML file for you.

Cheers,
Brad
