Now Addon filtering is just bypassed for Import/Export menus.

Not sure if this patch should remove the Import/Export addons from the
filtering list to reduce noise [this would be wrong since addons in this
category sometimes register not only to the Import/Export menus...]

Event Timeline

In general we should avoid initializing data in drawing code, it's too prone to errors when the draw code doesn't run.

You may install an import/export add-on after setting the filter.

Think this use_owner option feature from rB61c8ed40f5df897da212b55dadeee252c8d3997b isn't going to work well unless we have a way to initialize it when addons are enabled and when switching workspaces.

It's probably simpler to remove this feature and have a way for import/export menus to bypass this filtering option.

Didnt find a way to initialize this on addon enable, looking into doing the bypass for import/export menus instead...

Important user friendly feature, that do not work.

remove 'use_owner' feature and just bypass Import/Export Addon filtering in Import/Export menu
