If I bring my laptop to a 2 week liveboard, this feature would be
awesome. I like to tinker with my divelog, and on a liveboard I would
have plenty of time for it.
The Android app could just save the file to /sdcard/, which is available
by connecting an USB cable. Or I could just send it via bluetooth with
the standard Android sharing mechanism.
This would just be an alternative to the net upload, of course.
Creating a simple XML exporter is easy peasy, and Subsurface is already
good at merging dive data from different sources. Also, with this we
don't *have* to rely on a webservice, which might or might not be
offline at the moment.
