	I posted this on bitcoin-user, but nobody replied, so I'm
trying here.

	Today, when a user uses bitcoin-qt client, it can make a backup
of wallet.dat easily through menu, but when he/she needs to restore
this backup, he/she must copy the file to the correct folder and
execute "bitcoin-qt -rescan".

	My suggestion: bitcoin-qt developers could implement an easier
way to restore. For example: a option in the File menu "Restore Wallet"
or "Recover Wallet" where it would show a dialog asking for the backup
file and everything would be done automatically (no need to do it

	If we want everybody to use bitcoin, these operations should
be as easy as possible.

	What do you think?
