Allow custom review forms to be shared

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
It could be handy to be able to share custom review forms: quite often a lot of work goes into creating them, and other journals either within the same install or in other installs might benefit from being able to use a previously-created form as a starting base. Two possible ways to handle this:
1) allow custom review forms to be optionally made available to other journals within the same OJS install. There could be a "share" checkbox on the form listings page allowing this.
2) create some sort of XML import/export functionality. This would allow journals on other sites to export/import review forms.
If import/export will be (part of) the solution then please use the filter framework to implement this. Thereby most of the import/export code could be shared across all apps.
Agreed that import/export would be the best way to do this. However, deferring.
