Exporting PE component settings

Is there any way to export the settings for a PE component to a file, and then import it into a different project? I see a way to create a template from a component, but that looks like it adds the template to the local set of templates, which isn't what I want. I'm writing a library for reuse by others, and I'd like to include a file that they can use to pre-configure a component that goes with a particular library module. And also put that file under version control. It would be nice if it were in some text form that I could hack, so that I could strip out certain things like the component name and device choice, or other user preferences like baud rates or timer divisors. Seems like an obvious thing to want to do.

 

Since copy and paste work on components between projects, I tried copying a component and then pasting into a text file, but all I got was a description. A nicely formatted chunk of XML in the clipboard would have been the ideal solution.
