Provide "replace/override" capabilities when using the CDConfig Tool for Map.cfg and Usr.cfg import

Currently the Connect:Direct CDConfig tool does NOT support the "replace/override" functionality when importing Netmap or User entries. It currently will update existing Initparms, but for some reason it doesn't update existing Netmap or User entries. For High Availability and to be able to "Sync" two production servers, this is a feature that I would have expected the CDConfig tool to support. Would love to see this capability added in the near future.

    I am new to Connect:Direct support and was extremely surprised this functionality isn't available. As admins, we may need to do a mass update for something as small as description.
