Good idea, i will implement it if there is no objection (with #include
instead of #import).

Note that you can do it yourself with the -P flag: 
  wml -P ./wml-import.pl file.wml
---------------- wml-import.pl ----------------
while ($line = <>) {
    if ($line =~ m|^#import `(.*)`$|) {
        print qx/$1/;
    } else {
        print $line;
------------ end of wml-import.pl -------------
