error/infinite import of wallet-file #714

The import of non-presale-wallets will cause a stalling/infinite import dialog.
Affected wallets (web3-secret-storage version 1 to 3):

  • kryptokit #631
  • Mist wallets (create wallet, move out of keystore and import)

We could also change the menu-label from import Pre-sale Accounts to import Wallet.

There is an outstanding design decision - I would like to get your input at.

As you know the import-wallet view will ask for a password after the drop event, but as
web3-secret-storage-files just need to be copied it is not needed. Which gives me three possibilites:

  1. let the user input the password regardless of the wallet type and use the code at ipc_import-etc to decide on the procedure
  2. get some js to figure out the wallet type before proceeding to the password screen
  3. use user input elements to let the user decide on the wallet type
  4. create a second menuitem for web3-files

I would clearly prefer 2. but can't figure out a way to include fs to read and evaluate the json file for its type within meteor's onboarding js code (clientside).
Which leaves me with new ipc-command and evaluation before the user might be prompt for a password.

(2) is the most elegant solution, but (3) is a decent fallback.

Finally implemented basic functionality of (2) on the airplane today. ;)
Import of web3 as well as presale files is now possible, while the former will directly show the importing animation as a dummy for 750ms.
