Base Export Manager

This module extends the export capability:

1. It allows an admin to manage export profiles (``ir.exports``) that
Odoo stores internally but does not show anywhere.
2. It also adds a new column to access rights to enable/disable export and
override the export method to check if the user is allowed to export. Export
is enabled by default.


* Activate the developer mode
* Go to Settings > Users > Groups to select a user group
* Edit the group and go to the Access Rights tab
* Uncheck the "Export Access" box on the object of your choice and save

You can also go to Settings > Technical > Security > Access Rights.


You can create the export profiles as you are used to:

* Go to any list view.
* Check some records.
* Press *More > Export*.
* Use the wizard to choose the columns to export.
* Press *Save fields list*.
* Give it a name.
* Press *OK*.

To manage export profiles, you need to:

* Go to *Settings > Technical > User Interface > Export Profiles*.
* Create a new one.
* Choose a name.
* Choose a model (table in the database).
* Choose the fields to export.

* You can drag & drop to reorder the fields.

To use one of those profiles, you need to:

* Go to any list view.
