Instead of just aborting or actually doing the export (which won't do anything really), we could ask whether the user wants to make the working copy unversioned, and then remove all admin dirs.

first of all: add your comments to the issue!

comments (but not create new issues) for exactly that reason.

second: have you seen the export "dialog"? It's not a real dialog but
the default windows folder browser.
