I've added both of my items in one issue, as they are all part of the same functionality.

I'd like to see if it's possible to add a few features to the IP lists pages(/pfblockerng/pfblockerng_category.php?type=ipv4 and /pfblockerng/pfblockerng_category.php?type=ipv6).

Copy List: It would be a great time-saver if I could easily copy a rule from IPv4 to IPv6. I have a lot of lists that pull from supplied txt/csv files, or ASN lookups. It would be nice to be able to copy a list from IPv4 to IPv6 rather than having to re-enter the same data twice. Another option would be to, when creating a list, specify IPv4/IPv6/IPv4+IPv6 and automatically create the two lists. Most external files are the same file for both IPv4 and IPv6, along with the fact that ASNs can have prefixes for both IPv4 and IPv6, a lot of the times, the lists are exactly the same.

Export/Import: As an admin, I manage multiple pfSense instances(20+). There are numerous IP lists(with multiple external sources like txt/csv and ASNs, where pfBlocker scrapes these lists, and performs de-duplication) I have built that I would like to have on multiple instances, an import/export option would be nice to have to manage this. It is a pain to have to create this list on each box I have. Ultimately, I am not looking to export/import the list/alias itself, I am looking to export/import the parameters of said list. Because the IPs contained in the external lists that are being pulled, along with the dynamic nature of ASNs, I need to easily copy these parameters to other boxes.
