Lightroom: Provide a confirmation of how many presets and profiles were imported

The Import command of the Presets panel should provide a confirmation dialog saying how many develop presets and how many profiles were imported:

5 presets and 2 profiles were imported. The presets will appear in the Presets panel and the profiles in the Profiles browser in the Basic panel.

Many users don't fully understand the differences between presets and profiles, and when they download an "XMP file", they tend to assume it's a preset. Then they get confused when the "preset" doesn't show up in the presets panel.

There have been a number of posts about this, e.g.

The confirmation dialog would be a trivial way to eliminate that confusion.

Also, when the import finishes, all the preset and profile groups referenced by the imported presets should be unhidden automatically.  And the dialog should list the groups into which the imported presets/profiles were placed.  Users often buy presets and can't find them after import because the creator of the preset put them in some group other than "User Presets".
