Need Ability To Batch-Update Saved Import (ODBC) Connection Strings

For various reasons, including refreshing development models from production, and disaster recovery, it is necessary for us to be able to batch-update the ConnectionString values in the ImportODBC table using SQL from time to time--for example, to change all references from ServerA to ServerB. In previous versions of ICM, this was possible. In version 9x this value is encrypted, preventing us from performing this task. It is not practical to update all 200+ Saved Imports using the Admin Client.

We would like the ability to disable encryption of this value, or for some tool to be provided to assist us in updating these connection strings in batches, and/or for new functionality such as something like what was requested in RFE #96033 but usable for batches of values at a time.
