I didn't see a contradiction here and thus didn't reply to that point.

If sync works, its a lot more convenient and powerful than manual
import/export (two-way, incremental sync!). Some users prefer such a
solution and therefore invest the initial effort of setting it up. I
definitely prefer it and therefore write software which makes it

You seem to disagree or prefer the simplicity of import/export. You are
also willing to invest the extra effort to keep your different databases
consistent manually. That's fine, too.

The whole point is that these are different approaches with different
constraints and advantages/disadvantages. Everyone should choose for
himself which solution is possible for him and more desirable.
