Lightroom: Return last used keywords as the default in LR import dialog

In Lightroom, prior to version 3, the import dialog would default to the last set of keywords used. As anyone who has shot multiple cards for the same job can attest, this can be very helpful. With Version 3, all the keywords are cleared out after every import. Is there any option to enable the previous, desirable behavior, or are we stuck having to remember to copy the keywords prior to importing so we can paste them in the next import?

If nothing else, having it remember the previous _preset_ would be just as good for me! The fact that you always have to walk through and make sure everything is set the way you had it last time is getting to be more than just a mild pain...

I'd love to see LR's import dialog list the previously used keywords. Or at least have the option to display them there.

I personally do a fair amount of repetitive import sessions that require a lot of the same keywords and having to enter them all each time is exhausting.
