LCM import-option to overwrite existing objects in PAW

Regarding “corporate usability” of PAW and its Lifecycle Management, please provide the import-option to overwrite existing folders/books. It is not feasible to import a structure (folders and books) to a temporary folder an afterwards move one book after the other to its real place.

    The LCM should give users the option to replace contents of a specific folder (all files) or transfer one file from one environment to another. Deploying to a temp area and then having to move is time consuming. Additionally, deploying a file that has been modified in the source with the intent of replacing in the destination generates an error that the item exists. Forcing you to first delete the file and then moving from the temp area. Just too many steps! The workflow of the entire PA product needs to be improved just about everywhere! From workspace to PAX.
