Thanks for the input Frank. 
It's not really much effort for me since the functionality for importing the files is already there. I just need to copy the account structure files over. 

Also, upon first launch of the app, users have the option to create some default accounts. I might as well just create a proper GnuCash tree there. This would match the desktop accounts right down to the account IDs and may spare the work of exporting your account structure and importing it again.
