Prevent duplicate imports by name into config nodes

Hi Node-RED,

When importing nodes or examples into flows and when these imports contain settings for configuration nodes duplicate entries with the same name are created.

This is for the same configuration node type.

If ids match then I receive a prompt where I can view nodes and decide what to import.

In part I am wondering if it is possible to filter config imports based on name as it does on id. For example if a setting's name already exists the user can be prompted as they are if matching ids are identified. Or alternatively the matching node names can be sipped on import.

I am not sure if this is already possible through modifying or extending the node core. But it would be a very useful feature. Even just a checkbox on the import screen that forces the view nodes before import dialog if checked.

Many thanks.
