Running with my own idea on this I have modified the import mechanism to
allow additional code to be added to the import process
Basically with my modified system tiddler $:/core/ui/ImportListing you
create a tiddler (sample Provided) tagged $:/tags/importcolumn
In such a import column tiddler the following fields are transcluded as
- above-listing Shows above the import table - perhaps use to indicate
- below-listing Shows below the import table - who knows
- caption is used as a column heading - and can provide tooltip and/or
link to the import column tiddler
- text contains the wiki text to use for each import item - for example
show tiddlers with a specific field
In my first test I use it to interrogate the wiki-owner field of incoming
tiddlers, and I can uncheck those owned by the current wiki. Import this
bundle, then import it a second time to see it in operation.
For those already familiar with tiddlywiki the are a lot of ways you can
interrogate or manipulate the list with these hooks, and bundles and
plugins can include their own additional import support tools. I am yet to
investigate removing items from the import list automagicaly, but I expect
it is possible at worst with a button.
Since this is perhaps less than 100-200 bytes it makes sense for this or a
re-worked version be added to the core $:/core/ui/ImportListing tiddler
such that any plugin or user can extend the import function as needed
without modifying the shadow tiddler.
Please give me your feedback before I submit it to the GitHub Issues, as
"Extensible import facility"
PS in the above discussion about bundles I would like to add I quickly
abandoned using the standard bundle, and now only use the filtered bundles
since it is easy to list tiddlers in the filter anyway.

Regarding DELETION of items in Bundle Lists (not Filtered) ...
Its an interesting issue. And in my specific use case it doesn't look that
easy. An example will show why ...
title: bundle.base tag: $:/tags/Bundle
[[--- PMario's plugin that enables opening tabs as untabbed Tiddlers ---]]
[[--- Felix's flow adjustment ---]]
[[--- Base changes in CSS ---]]
[[--- Hide descriptions in Tools menu ---]]
In this use case there are (1) disparate types and names of Tiddlers
(filtering too complex); (2) there are multiple components only one or two
of which I may want to delete, not all of them.
So the problem arises of HOW to delete one or more items AND leave the
rest intact AND update the Bundle to match. Currently I do it all manually.
That is just my typical use-case. Other use cases likely would not have
that complexity and could likely be done more easily.
FWIW to make my manual "pruning" easier when I need to find and delete in
the TW something listed in a bundle I change content Type to
"text/vnd.tiddlywiki" the easier to navigate to them, then delete. Then I
switch the bundle back to "text/plain" and edit out lines of items now
gone. Its cumbersome but okay.
