I can't speak of deploy, but this is defintely one of the three major  
use cases I'm having in my mind when thinking of exporting/importing  
site structure:

- deployment
- install profiles (or module package configurations)
- version control

One additional thing I'm having in the back of my head is doing the  
same thing with content: Once we've figured out what's structure in  
our sites, the rest is content, right?
