Can I export/Import just settings?

Does anyone know of a way or a module that allows you to export/import just the settings from and Odoo instance.  PLEASE NOTE: I DON'T want to export the database, I know that I can do that.  What I really want to do is export just the configuration of my set-up, which ideally would include which modules are installed, which configuration options are checked, etc.  I'm looking for something similar to how Wordpress allows you to export settings and not data.  I suspect there is not a way, but I thought I'd ask.

For those interested, the rationale for doing this and not exporting the whole DB would be so that I could create test/staging/development server copies, but without dealing in the production data and then being able to save the configuration.

Would this be an option?

I suggest you to try.. duplicate the database, and then trucate every table except ir_*. Then try to start Odoo with this modified database. Maybe there were more tables contents needed, but I think it's a good point to start, but could depends on how each module has mixed data with models and configs.
